Cooper's Riders Beats Bridget Jones As Top Read

JILLY COOPER's RIDERS has been crowned British women's favourite holiday book, beating BRIDGET JONES' DIARY and HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE to the top spot.

Women in the poll conducted by TESCO.COM chose the romance novel as their number one choice to read on a sunny beach, followed by HELEN FIELDING's Bridget Jones' Diary, BIRDSONG by SEBASTIAN FAULKS and THE HORSE WHISPERER by NICHOLAS EVANS.

For men, HIGH FIDELITY by NICK HORNBY was voted top reading choice, followed by JOHN GRISHAM's THE FIRM, JRR TOLKIEN's THE LORD OF THE RINGS, Hornby's FEVER PITCH and ALEX GARLAND's THE BEACH.

Hornby comments, "I'm amazed that anyone would want to lie under Mediterranean skies reading about someone being miserable in North London pubs and clubs."
