Goodreads Compares Parties' Literary Tastes

Posted at 4:09PM Wednesday 10 Oct 2012

Popular book-rating website Goodreads has created an infographic about their users' preferences related to political parties. The site asked their readers who they would vote for in the upcoming election, then analyzed their literary tastes.

Obama fans were three times more likely to read "Freedom" by Jonathan Franzen, Romney fans were four times more likely to read "Heaven is for Real" by Todd Burpo, a true story about the son of a pastor in Nebraska.
