There was a thing on Facebook a few weeks ago asking people to list ten books that have stayed with them in some way. So Facebook analyzed the responses from 130,000 people to figure out the 100 most influential books.
64% of the people who responded were in the U.S., three out of every four were female, and the average age is older than you'd expect . . . 37. Here are the top ten books that have stuck with us . . .

1. The "Harry Potter" series by J.K. Rowling.

2. "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee.

3. The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.

4. "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien.

5. "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen.

6. The Bible.

7. "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams.

8. The "Hunger Games" series by Suzanne Collins.

9. "Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger.

10. "The Chronicles of Narnia" by C.S. Lewis.
