Bulgarians name Lord of the Rings top book of all times

Date: 18.11.2007

Bulgarian readers placed The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K.Rowling at the top three spots in a survey of the fifteen books of all times.

A total of 28,000 readers voted for their favorite book in the poll carried out by Helicon bookstores, abandoning renowned literature classics at the bottom of the ranking.

The top three favorites are followed by John Steinbeck's East of Eden, Exupery's The Little Prince and Dan Braun's contemporary bestseller The Da Vinci Code.

The taste of Bulgarian readers is obviously following global trends as a similar poll in Britain in 2006 placed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and The Da Vinci Code in the top three places, critics commented.

A major difference is that the British readers voted only for books published for the first time during the past 25 years.
