Top read book reviews of 2011

I thought it might be interesting to look at the most popular book reviews read on this blog in 2011 (not from when they were first published). Not unsurprisingly, the older posts feature more strongly given that they have had the longest to attract hits. The top 15 were:

The Builders by Frank McDonald (review posted Nov 2009)
Operation Napoleon by Arnadalur Indridson (review posted Oct 2010)
Case Histories by Kate Atkinson (review posted Jan 2011)
I, The July by Mickey Spillane (review posted Nov 2010)
We Die Alone by David Howarth (review posted Dec 2010)
Miami Blues by Charles Willeford (review posted Feb 2011)
Field Grey by Philip Kerr (review posted Feb 2011)
Wild Blue by Stephen Ambrose (review posted Feb 2011)
Spitting on a Soldier's Grave by Robert Widders (review posted March 2011)
Cogan's Trade by George Higgins (review posted July 2010)
The Main by Trevanian (review posted Mar 2011)
Mercy by Jussi Adler-Olsen (review posted June 2011)
A Stone of the Heart by John Brady (review posted May 2011)
The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson (review posted Jan 2011)
The Ice Harvest by Scott Phillips (review posted Feb 2011)

The top two are also the reviews that have been most read since the blog started in July 2009.
