From Shades of Grey to Wimpy Kid: The Most Checked Out Library Books Last Year

Even Dr. Seuss made the list of most circulated books at the Rochester Hills Public Library.

Wondering what your neighbors have been reading? We were curious, so we asked Christine Hage, director of the Rochester Hills Public Library, for a list of the most checked out books in 2012.

Topping the list was Fifty Shades of Grey with 466 checkouts. Six books from the "Wimpy Kid" series made the Top 25 list.
