Kimmel asked passers-by to name any book, and it went spectacularly badly

Prompted by some recent stats from the Pew Research Center about how many books Americans read, Jimmy Kimmel decided to do some investigating.

According to the study, about one in four Americans didn’t read a book last year. Kimmel wagered that that figure was actually too high, and sent his team to ask pedestrians to name literally any book.

A lot of people blanked entirely, or gave answers like The Lion King. To be fair, it is a weirdly broad question.
