Bible is America's Favorite Book

The Bible is America's favorite book, according to a new survey. It came in first in a Harris Poll of nearly 2,513 adults, but the second choice in the survey was not as clear cut, Reuters reported.

"While the Bible is No. 1 among each of the different demographic groups, there is a large difference in the No. 2 favorite book," Harris said in a statement announcing the results.

Men chose J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and women selected Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind as their second-favorite book, according to the online poll. But the second choice for 18- to 31-year-olds was J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, while 32- to 43-year-olds named Stephen King's The Stand and Dan Brown's Angels & Demons.

Picks for second-favorite book also varied according to region. Gone With the Wind was No. 2 in the Southern and Midwestern states, while easterners chose The Lord of the Rings and westerners opted for The Stand, Reuters reported.
