Random quote: "I think that most of us, anyway, read these stories that we know are not "true" because we're hungry for another kind of truth: the mythic truth about human nature in general, the particular truth about those life-communities that define our own identity, and the most specific truth of all: our own self-story. Fiction, because it is not about someone who lived in the real world, always has the possibility of being about oneself. " - Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game)

The WWEnd Most Read list was recently limited to books with 450+ member reads, instead of the previous 100 read threshold. I understand the reason for this change, as the list had become somewhat unwieldy, but I for one found the old list was frequently useful in bringing to light books that were popular by most definitions but that had not yet come to my attention.

I don't suggest going back to the old list, but some way of searching the database for a range of reads (eg 50-80, 200-300, etc) or sorting the yearly lists by number of reads, or anything similar, would be a useful tool.

We had another request to make the list longer in another thread and I offered to make it 200 if enough folks what a longer list. The 3.0 site will have filtering and sorting options built into the lists, awards, search, etc. that will likely give you what you want. When that will be a reality is beyond me at the moment. Life keeps getting in the way of progress.
