Voting in PBS’s Great American Read ends this coming Thursday, and The Guardian has made a gleeful observation about the standings as of last Thursday.
Half of the top ten are “very British books,” in the newspaper’s words: Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, the Lord of the Rings series, the Harry Potter series, and the Chronicles of Narnia.
The other leaders, in no particular order, are Charlotte's Web, Gone with the Wind, Little Women, the Outlander series, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
These contenders (and others) were chosen through a survey conducted by public opinion polling service YouGov, and the ultimate winner will be revealed October 23.
Bookworms can vote in three ways: by using the voting app on The Great American Read's website, or by posting an original post to Facebook or Twitter using the official hashtag for their favorite book.
Each of these methods is limited to one per day, but readers are allowed to vote as many days as they want leading up to October 18.
