If you started and ended the decade as a voracious reader, perhaps you picked up a few of these titles. 

According to NPD Bookscan, these were the books that flew off the shelves this decade. 

"Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L. James (2011) "Fifty Shades Darker" by E.L. James (2011) "Fifty Shades Freed" by E.L. James (2012) "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins (2008) "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett (2009) "The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins (2015) "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn (2012) "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green (2012) "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson (2008) "Divergent" by Veronica Roth (2011)

The bestseller, "Fifty Shades of Grey," sold 15.2 million copies from 2010 through 2019. 

A lot has changed over 10 years, including how we read books. Shorter print titles started topping bestseller lists more as the decade went on. 

“We ultimately consumed media much differently at the end of the decade than we did at the start,” said Kristen McLean, books industry analyst for NPD Bookscan. “More forms of media entertainment are now competing for our attention. As a result, the print books we’re reading are shorter, because there are more demands on consumers’ free time, as they stream more video and listen to more podcasts and audiobooks.”

Print lovers can rest easy — 6.5 billion print books were sold compared to 1.8 billion e-books over the past decade.
