There is also an article by Anthony Quinn on naming fictional characters

For LT members, the most owned book is Silas Marner with around 9500 copies. The Claudius books, Mr Biswas and Rose Macaulay all manage four figures and there are respectable numbers of Colwin's cookbooks, Ring of Bright Water, Arthur Ransome's pair and No Picnic on Mount Kenya. There are lots of copies of Casanova's Life but most seem to be abridged versions: the reviewer is discussing Willard Trask's six volume translation and an (allegedly) complete single volume edition from Benediction Classics and I would guess that very few of these are on LT. The Burgess Malayan trilogy works only manage 20-odd copies of each volume but there are more than 500 copies of the combined edition, The Long Day Wanes. All Rachel Ferguson's works are on LT, 466 of the Woolworth's book but small numbers of the others. The two rarities are Language Hunting in the Karakoram (5 copies) by Emily Lorimer, wife of the British Political Officer to the area in the 1920s and Eda Lord's novel/memoir of childhood (2 copies) in the Upland South of the USA in the early 20th.C.
