What is the Internetâ€™s Favorite Book?
Geege Schuman stashed this in Books
With a score of 4.81, the highest rated book is Bill Wattersonâ€™sÂ The Complete Calvin and Hobbes. Over 27,000 users have rated the book, and considerably more than 80% of them have given it five stars. It scores just ahead theÂ ESV Study BibleÂ â€“ and English standard version of the Bible with evangelical commentary.
Five of the top twenty rated books areÂ Calvin and Hobbesâ€™ collections. The dominance of Bill Wattersonâ€™s comics about a young boy and his stuffed tiger can be looked at in two ways. One, almost everyone who reads this book loves it, or two, Calvin and Hobbes fans are unusuallyÂ devotedÂ to the strip and likely to vote on Goodreads. It is likely some combination of the two.
I would have guessed Harry Potter but this makes a lot more sense.Â
