What you read in 2015

We totaled up the amount of time our readers spent online with our stories in 2015, and we’ve presented them below in that order. What did we find? That you spent a lot of time with a mix of investigative projects, features, politics and breaking news. At the top of the list, you collectively spent 75,604 minutes – or more than 52 days – reading the year’s top story, about the dispute over the Center Lovell Inn essay contest. (Full disclosure: We borrowed this idea from the New York Times.)
