Post HBP popular with parliamentarians

'Half-Blood Prince' is reportedly the third favourite holiday reading matter for British parliamentarians this year.

The 'Da Vinci Code' came in first, with the biography of William Pitt the Younger taking second place.

Cool! That means that even if it may be seen as Children's fiction, parliamentarians still read it. The Da Vinci Code is a brain teaser more than anything, and HBP would probably suit their easing minds after such wormbling theories.

I've never read The Da Vinci Code, but I have heard of it. It's not surprising that it is high up in the list. I mean is known by so many people, and a lot of people like the books so it's no wonder why it's number third on the list^^

Not only is "Half Blood Prince" an excellent book, but so is "The Da Vinci Code" I adored that sucker. But that is really awesome. Good books on that list although, cannot say that I recognize the biography

Who read the Da Vinci Code can understand why it's their first choice! A part of the book is in the UK!!
Anyway... I read the Da Vinci Code after HP and The Half Blood Prince and I think that HP is way muc better!
