LOTR Tops ‘The Big Read’ After One Week’s Vote

October 25, 2003 at 4:36 pm by Strider  - 

After just one week’s worth of voting, The Lord of the Rings heads the shortlist of 21 nominees, preened down from an original list of 100, as the BBC looks to identify the UK’s favourite book – a project known as ‘The Big Read’. Tonight’s show, the first in a series of seven which will examine three of the nominees in each, saw host Clive Anderson reveal that The Lord of the Rings is heading the pack, holding off Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, His Dark Materials and To Kill A Mockingbird respectively. It has yet to be announced when The Lord of the Rings will be examined.
