A new Harris poll says that Stephen King is still “America’s favorite author.”
He’s followed by:
No. 2: James Patterson
No. 3: John Grisham
No 4: Nora Roberts, who also writes as J.D. Robb
And, No. 5: Tom Clancy
So where’s Stephenie Meyer, author of the blockbuster Twilight series? She didn’t make the top 10. According to Harris, the poll was conducted online in the U.S. between Aug. 9 and 16 with 2,775 adults, aged 18 and over.
How about J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter author? She takes the No. 9 spot, tied with J. R.R. Tolkien. Dean Koontz, Danielle Steel and Dan Brown were 6, 7 and 8. (Reprinted from USA Today)
