I don't think it works as books every adult should have read. I mean, what is the overlap in readership between Solzhenitsyn and Margaret Mitchell?

Well, it includes apotropaism by her own account. And others here, here and here. There's probably some fun statistic-cruching to do there but I'm not going to be the one taht does it this time!

Go on, you know you want to... which two books have the lowest overlap? the highest? which book is least read? (and weighted for number of books each person has read?) There's hours of fun there...
