Most borrowed book from London libraries revealed

A GUIDE on how to pass the British citizenship test has trumped best-selling authors like Dan Brown to become the most borrowed book from London libraries.

Life in the United Kingdom: A Guide for New Residents was the book most library users sought around the capital in 2013/2014.

The book, which details immigration to Britain since the Middle Ages, has proven a popular source of history for those seeking British citizenship.

Questions on the citizenship test include ‘Who is the patron saint of Scotland?’ and ‘What is the name of the admiral who died in a sea battle in 1805 and has a monument in Trafalgar Square, London?’

Elsewhere, James Patterson’s Private Down Under proved the most popular book with the Scots, while Dan Brown’s Inferno was the book of choice in the North of Ireland.

Despite it's popularity Fifty Shades of Grey failed to make the top 100 books of the year in British libraries.
