Other books making the top ten (might not be in exactly the right order):NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - When it comes to literary pursuits in the United States most people agree on at least one thing -- the most popular book is the Bible, according to a new survey.
It came in first in a Harris Poll of nearly 2,513 adults but the second choice in the survey was not as clear cut.
"While the Bible is number one among each of the different demographic groups, there is a large difference in the number two favorite book," Harris said in a statement announcing the results...
Gone with the Wind (Margaret Mitchell)
The Lord of the Rings. (JRR Tolkien)
Harry Potter titles (JK Rowling)
The Stand (Stephen King)
Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code,"
"To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee,
"Angels and Demons" by Dan Brown
"Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand
"Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger
Some of the books are good. Seeing two Dan Brown books in the list makes my skin crawl, though. (And Ayn Rand still makes the list!? Amazing.)
It was done through a Harris online poll, so that might give you an idea of demographics. I am also not sure what the poll looked like -- if there were just blanks for entries, or a predetermined list.
