This is fun! To celebrate National Literacy Month Half Price Books are having a vote for favourite literary characters. There are profiles for each character, interviews and campaign gear. The choices are:

Atticus Finch
Jason Bourne
Carrie Bradshaw
The Grinch (who answers all his interview questions in rhyme!)
Mary Poppins
Harry Potter

I see write in is winning. I wrote in Jo March, since she is my fav. I'm kinda dissapointed by their choices. I'm not shocked HP is on there. :rolleyes:

Absolutely! Atticus Finch is one of my definitions of gentleman. He is also one of the most interesting characters in fiction. The others, well, they're famous because of being fictional characters, but Finch is someone that you could meet and admire in real life -- the others, well, they're rather in the improbable area. But of the list, Finch wins, hands down.
