The purpose of this study is to understand the direction of the community reading campaign in the U.S.A. known as ‘One Book, One City’ reflected in the books selected for this campaign for the past 20 years in terms of their classification numbers, subject headings, publication dates, and genres. Analyzed are the author and state lists of ‘One Book, One City’ Reading Promotions Projects available from the website of the LC(Library of Congress) Center for the Books, and bibliographic records of 735 books selected in only one ‘One Book’ program, accessed from LC OPAC. Major findings include continuing influences of the all-time favorite ‘One Book’ selections, including To Kill a Mockingbird and the extension of their span of life through The Big Read, preference for the recent publications, importance of P(Literatures and Languages) Class(530 titles, 72.1%) and PS(American Literatures) subclass(307 titles, 57.9%) in the LC Classification Scheme, distribution of books in 43 genres, including domestic fiction, historical fiction, and psychological fiction, etc., the use of 535 unique LC subject headings and much interests in “City and town life”(10 titles) and “World War, 1939-1945”(8 titles), and prominence of subject groups which begin with “African American...” and “Woman...” out of 96 groups of subject headings. It is found that the subjects and focus of the selected books expand from integration, understanding, integrity to human rights, environment, peace, etc. The limitations of this study is that the influence of the selected books and the changes in communities are not properly analyed.
