The Sydney Morning Herald has an article discussing the recently announced results of a survey asking what the UK’s 50 Best-Loved books by a female author are. The first Harry Potter book, Philosopher’s Stone, is in fact 13th on the list while 3 of Jane Austen’s place 1st, 6th and 7th. Thanks to Karen for reminding us: You may recall that Austen is Rowling’s #1 most favorite author.

Q. Who is you favorite author?

J.K. Jane Austen. I find her un-put-downable. :-)
