Great Books Of All Time – Harry By A Nose?

After the success of its “Great Britons of all time” poll, the BBC is going to apply the formula to books. Viewers will nominate 100 books. “In November, the top 10 books will be announced – and the case for each one will, as with Great Britons, be made in a one-hour special programme, presented by a celebrity, or at the very least a personality. Finally, before Christmas, there will be another giant vote. The result? It’s almost certain that ‘The Lord of the Rings’ will triumph over ‘Harry Potter’, in a tightly fought contest. Or vice versa.”
