End of decade spells the beginning for Rowling...

'Harry Potter' has yet again topped a nationwide poll, on this occasion winning the accolade of the book that people would most like to hand on to the next generation. Commissioned for World Book Day, more than 1,000 people from the ages of 16-64 were asked to cast a vote for a book in the last decade that they would give to young people. The full list was as follows:
  1. The 'Harry Potter' series  -  J.K. Rowling
  2. 'The Da Vinci Code' - Dan Brown
  3. 'Why Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze' - The New Scientist
  4. 'A Short History of Nearly Everything' - Bill Bryson
  5. 'Twilight' - Stephenie Meyer
  6. 'The Kite Runner' - Khaled Hosseini
  7. '9/11 Commission Report' - National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States
  8. 'You Are What You Eat' - Gillian McKeith
  9. 'The God Delusion' - Richard Dawkins
  10. 'Dreams From My Father' - Barack Obama

    IF YOU HAVE ANY SELF RESPECT NEVER EVER EVER READ THAT POOR EXCUSE OF A SERIES. It WILL fry your brain. It WILL DESTROY your sense of self worth. It WILL infect the entire world and we'll all end up like zombies in 28 days later.


    ps. hurrah for Harry Potter!
