Lord of the Rings named England’s favorite book

Tolkien triumphs in the BBC’s ‘Big Read.'” After The Lord of the Rings, the four triumphant runners-up are:

2. Pride And Prejudice
3. His Dark Materials
4. The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy
5. Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire

At least the Austen book made the cut. In the U.S., three of the books probably would be from the Harry Potter series. Clancy or Grisham would take another slot. A King book–The Stand, most likely?–would be the highlight. (Via The Literary Saloon.)
