While the Amazon editors and Bill Gates have both revealed their top books of 2015, what did Amazon readers choose?

Amazon released its customers’ favorite books of the year, and readers’ tastes ran the gamut from literary fiction, like Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman, to the erotica of Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian by E.L. James.

Amazon announced that Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train is its bestselling book of the year, followed by that Fifty Shades sequel.

Additionally, Amazon released its bestselling lists for Kids and Teens, with Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book Ten: Old School by Jeff Kinney topping that list, with the new Dr. Seuss What Pet Should I Get? at No. 2.

Lee’s Go Set a Watchman was the most gifted book of the year. The most wished-for book? Again, Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train.

Amazon calculates a book’s bestseller status by taking into account first editions published this year and those books’ print and Kindle sales.
