Happy World Book Day!

To commemorate the occasion, a "Top 10 Books The Nation Can't Live Without" list has been compiled. Tolkien and Harry Potter have beat the Bible. And I'm currently reading, and very much enjoying, the second half of #8.

The top ten are as follows:
1) Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen 20%
2) Lord of the Rings – JRR Tolkein 17%
3) Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte 14%
4) Harry Potter books – J K Rowling 12%
5) To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee 9.5%
6) The Bible 9%
7) Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte 8.5%
8) 1984 – George Orwell 6%
= His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman 6%
10) Great Expectations – Charles Dickens .55%
