 Survey Lists Harry Potter, Fifty Shades and The Bible as Most Popular Books

A new survey has revealed that Harry Potter, Fifty Shades of Grey and The Bible have been named the most popular books of all time in British households.

According to the survey, only one-in-five plan to re-read books they have already read, but cling on to them anyway because they become part of their furniture, the Sun reported.

The other titles that were seen in nearly every household in Britain are Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre and The Hobbit.

Celebrity autobiographies penned by the likes of Miranda Hart, David Walliams and Sun columnist Katie Price also featured prominently.

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and To Kill a Mockingbird were also popular choices.

Cook books by Jamie Oliver as well as The Official Highway Code were also found in most homes.

The survey also revealed that 25 percent people pretended to have read certain books to make themselves sound intellectual.

Elisabeth Robinson from Bookmark Your Library, who conducted the search, said it was refreshing to see how varied the list of books is.
