AMEN: THE BI­BLE IS AMER­ICA’S FA­VORITE BOOK

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Just so you know: The Bi­ble is Amer­ica’s fa­vorite book “of all time.” So says a Har­ris Poll re­leased Tues­day that asked 2,300 “un­prompted” re­spon­dents to vol­un­teer their an­swers. Mar­garet Mitchell’s “Gone with the Wind” was in sec­ond place, fol­lowed by J.K. Rowl­ing’s “Harry Pot­ter” se­ries, J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” se­ries, and Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mock­ing­bird” round out the top five.

“There is sort of a po­lit­i­cal di­vide. First, there is some­thing that Repub­li­cans, Democrats and in­de­pen­dents ac­tu­ally agree on. ‘Gone with the Wind’ is their sec­ond fa­vorite book. How­ever, while con­ser­va­tives and mod­er­ates say the same, lib­er­als’ sec­ond fa­vorite book is the ‘Harry Pot­ter’ se­ries,” points out poll­ster Regina Corso.
