Reading Lists

Every once in a while, I like to read a book simply because it has been lauded as a “must-read.” I’m always curious as to what the fuss is all about. In college, I took a Contemporary American Literature class, and my professor made a point of choosing most of our reading list from Oprah’s book club – he wanted us to experience what “the masses” were reading, and try to figure out why. Ever since, I’ve been curious as to what makes one book better than another, and I frequently read the books everyone seems to be talking about (albeit, usually much later).

Anyway, I thought it might be interesting to feature some of those lists on this blog, and mark off which one’s I have actually read – feel free to comment with the books you’ve read or which one you think I should read next (or if there is a must-read list I should add).

Use the drop-down menu to access each list separately.
