From the March edition of Writing Magazine:
According to a poll conducted for the UK's popular book review and recommendations website, Lovereading.co.uk, one in five British men believe that Charles Darwin wrote Oliver Twist and George Orwell's classic novel Animal Farm is a blue movie.
The study of Britain's reading habits also revealed that 25 percent thought that Sherlock Holmes was a real character, and 67 percent thought that the Scottish poet Robert Burns invented the haggis.
The survey of 2,000 men aged thirty and under revealed that on average they take between eight and twelve months to read one paperback.
