Anonymous Patron writes "News From Australia on a recent poll from the Australian Broadasting Co. The 100 favourite books poll has been thrown into question after an unknown author and Christian minister beat literary greats to get near the top of the list.
Reverend Col Stringer, a man who has apparently sold between 7 and 25,000 books, ended up near the top of the list. The ABC yesterday defended the legitimacy of the list, saying there was no multiple voting.
Spokeswoman Sarah Osmotherly said Stringer's name stood out but investigations found no multiple voting patterns."
