'Mockingbird' chosen as America's best-loved novel
LOS ANGELES (AP) － "To Kill a Mockingbird," a coming-of-age story about racism and injustice, overpowered wizards and time travelers to be voted America's best-loved novel by readers nationwide.
The 1960 book by the late Harper Lee ranked No. 1 in PBS' "The Great American Read" survey, the results of which were announced on Oct. 23 on the show's finale. More than 4 million votes were cast in the six-month-long contest that put 100 titles to the test. Books that were published as a series counted as a single entry.
The other top-five finishers in order of votes were Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series; J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter"; Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice"; and J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings."
Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel has sold more than 40 million copies and remains a fixture on school reading lists.
"There is soul-crushing injustice in this book that still exists," said Aaron Sorkin, a scriptwriter for a Broadway version of the novel.
