AMEN: THE BIBLE IS AMERICA’S FAVORITE BOOK
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.
