Sky News Australia - Books: 101 Best Books Ever Published

Sky News Australia - Books: 101 Best Books Ever Published: "Australian bookseller Dymocks has come up with a list of the 101 best books ever published, according to Australian readers.

More than 15,000 people took part in the online survey and some of the results were pretty surprising.

Proving you can't beat the classics, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice topped the list, with classics accounting for a third of the 101 titles.

The survey also found that Bryce Courtenay is Australia's most popular author.

Here is the list in full:

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
The Lord of the Rings Series - J.R.R. Tolkien
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown
Gone With the Wind - Margaret Mitchell
The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien
Harry Potter Series - J.K. Rowling
The Power of One - Bryce Courtenay
Magician - Raymond E. Feist
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte"

Interesting list from down under--with two classic Southern novels in the top 10... the BIble no. 23... Check it out.
