Garfield Redux

I owe the General an apology...

Mocking his taste in great literature and the Garfield series. I was kind of a dick.

And today, he's clearly vindicated. Via Kevin Drum, I see the list of the top books by volumes purchased by libraries here.

The top 50 are all classics... The Bible, Don Quixote, The Odyssey, The Iliad, Huck Finn, Hamlet... Garfield at Large.

Seriously. #15.

Ahead of Tom Sawyer, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Wuthering Heights, Canterbury Tales, Jane Eyre, Moby Dick, The Aeneid, and many many many more.

Garfield at Large.

Read that again.
