Sentimental Surrealist why are four of the top five books here widely read?

Yes, I agree as the first ones are very well known!


message 3: by Alena (new)

Alena MacLean Also The Help. I'd say that one is pretty well-known.


message 4: by Booklovinglady (last edited Jul 04, 2017 09:40AM) (new)

Booklovinglady Wuthering Heights (#6) can also hardly be called a book that "you've not even heard of"... (Were the voters asleep during English classes at school?). And there are several others as well that certainly wouldn't qualify, in my humble opinion at least. Just look at the GR ratings of some...

Nice idea, this list, but the contents turn out to be a shambles, unfortunately.


message 5: by Elyse (new)

Elyse Maybe the list originator, Jamilla, should limit the number of ratings to 500,000 and below.
