Lord of the Rings Top Book in Australia - ABC TV

The fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings has been named as Australia's favourite book.

ABC Television began asking Australians to nominate their favourite book in September.

Tens of thousands of people voted and the results were revealed last night during the program called My Favourite Book.

Topping the list was the The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien.

Second was Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and the Bible was named as the country's third most popular book.

Two Australian books made the Top 10 - Tim Winton's Cloudstreet and A B Facey's autobiographical novel, A Fortunate Life.
