Here’s the list of how much reading time you’re spending on our top stories. The top story on the Great Barrier Reef has gone gangbusters and close to one of the top 10 hits of all time. But it’s the attentive reading time that’s got us excited.

The ranking and figures are since Wednesday last week.

You will see, below, that the GBR story is also No 6 since January. And that the perennial favourite Cool Roofs Versus Dark Roofs: a special report, is still doing amazingly well given it was published in 2014. But then again, we know this site is used as a valuable resource for research, so it’s no real surprise.
