Memoirs, biographies and interviews make up the vast majority of the top 20 circulating books in the subjects of Art, Music and Recreation this fiscal year. Three titles are holdovers from the top circulating titles of 2012-2013 - Bossypants (number 1 last year), Waging Heavy Peace (number 7 last year) and Rita Moreno (number 22 last year).
There are only two titles without a biographical component. Difficult Men is behind the scenes survey of the changes in television dramas since the 1990s. One title that has defied the trend toward celebrity worship on this list is Knitting Yarns, a collection of writing about knitting and the community of knitters.
