It's interesting to see how many copies of the various volumes of Rememberance of Things Past there are on LT. I know the numbers aren't exactly right because there are lots of different editions and compilations and so on, but still:

Swann's Way - 1649
Within a Budding Grove - 698
The Guermantes Way - 391
Sodom and Gomorrah - 362
The Captive; The Fugitive - 177
The Past Recaptured - 255

It seems that lots of readers don't make it past Swann's Way, and lots more abandon Proust after volume 2; but those who persevere to volume 3 seem to advance to volume 4. And then more people have vol 6 than vol 5 - but that might be because some editions lump The Captive and The Fugitive together and some don't.

What about copies of the entire 3 volume set.
