I really do not think so. The great mass of readers read best sellers or specific books that they read because their friends talk about them. An for them they want to read specific books.
I have thousands of books worth reading since I bought a lot of SF books and wanted to have a collection but these books I mostly bought used. The new books I buy is always specific books that I want to read before all other books.
