This is the most popular book in Georgia

There are  libraries galore in Georgia, but there’s one book locals can’t get enough of, according to Scribd

It’s “The Art of Not Giving A [expletive]” by Mark Manson.

The digital book subscription service, used by 100 million people monthly, determined its results by scouring its own database to identify the most-read literature in all 50 states from Oct. 1 to Oct. 18. 

Researchers found that the self-help manual wasn’t the top choice just among Georgians. It was the most beloved across all 50 states, winning over folks in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Texas and California. 

Released in 2016, the New York Times bestseller aims to show “us that the key to being happier is to stop trying to be ‘positive’ all the time and instead to become better at handling at adversity,” it says.  

Other books on the list included Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened,” Stephen King’s “It” and Malcolm Gladwell’s  “What the Dog Saw.”

Georgia’s own Gucci Mane made the cut, too. The Atlanta rapper’s autobiography was the most popular in North Carolina.
