Book Map of Armenia | September

Oct 06, 2023 News Book Map of Armenia

September bookmap in English 


This month, as in summer, the lists of books requested in Armenian libraries were mainly determined by the school literary program, although to a lesser extent than in July and August. September lists are extremely varied and include 96 literary works by 70 authors.  
Among the most requested authors in city public libraries are Nar-Doss, Raffi, Agatha Christie, Erich Maria Remarque, Khaled Hosseini, John Green, and others. 11 detective novels by Agatha Christie included in top lists appear in the statistics of participating libraries more than 200 times. Her novels “The Body in the Library” and “The Alphabet Murders” are among the top lists of the most requested books.Erich Maria Remarque, whose books “Heaven Knows No Chosen”, “A Time to Live and a Time to Die”, “Three Friends”, “Arc de Triomphe” and “All Quiet on the Western Front,” asked 108 times in September, is the most popular author among young people.  
Alex Michaelides, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Gurgen Khanjian, Gurgen Mahari, Khaled Hosseini, Mark Levy, Narine Abgarian, John Green, and Jojo Moyes are listed with two books each, and William Saroyan is listed with three books. There are not many poetry collections in our top ten. As in previous months, only a few poetry books are on the list. Perhaps the present time is not quite suitable for poetry. A modern reader satisfies his poetic “hunger” by browsing literary pages online.
