Mashup books and SATs

Here’s a mashup of average SATs with favorite books as listed on Facebook.  At the top, Lolita, 100 Years of Solitude, Crime and Punishment, Catch-22.  At the bottom, The Bible, Zane, The Color Purple.

There’s no causal link.  The mashup demonstrates correlation.  What it means: If you have a high SAT, you’re more likely to claim to enjoy Lolita. If you have a low SAT, you’re more likely to prefer The Color Purple.

Liking Harry Potter puts you just shy of 1100.

What’s on your Facebook booklist?
