Someone kindly sent me a copy of Yorkshire Magazine for June 2009, drawing my attention to an article on Public Lending Rights, or PLR. This is the system which keeps track of the number of borrowings of books from libraries and pays the writer a proportionate fee, based on about 5p per borrowing. The article listed the top 20 authors in the county, based on PLR, and there I was at number 10, in front of some really big names. Lydia Monks was top of the league, with one of my favourites, Joanne Harris, in second place.
