I refuse to believe that reading Ayn Rand makes you smart.

Observations:

1.) Ouch, Bible.
2.) Harry Potter: surprisingly middle-brow.
3.) This and the music list are pretty clearly skewed to the disadvantage of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. What do you think that says?

I noticed the same thing about HBCUs, Chris. In actuality, I doubt much can really be made of either of these lists.
However, I liked that the bible corresponded with a lower SAT score than "I don't read" did.

The Bible placed so low because people who don't read put it as one of their favorite books.

I'm more confused about the high placement of sci fi.

Where do you think "Harry Potter: The Bible" by Ayn Rand falls?

1700-1900 SAT range.
