Revealed – the books we just can’t finish | Top News | Reuters

The list mostly makes sense… except that #2 is “Harry Potter: The Goblet of Fire”. This is sad given that these are books directed at children and adolescents, who can easily breeze through the entire thing.

“Ulysses” by James Joyce is #3. More people can finish “Ulysses” (percentage-wise) than a Harry Potter book!? Granted, the sample size is quite different.
