The Book, 1913

The Book, 1913 – in association with Art.com

Book lists! There’s a list for just about every reader here – several lists for former English majors reading the same books that all of the other former English majors are reading, lists for foodies, science geeks, Catholics, evangelicals, atheists, capitalists, socialists, and a few lists for those who read books that apparently no one else is reading. It should be abundantly obvious that I do not endorse anywhere close to every title on these lists, but I appreciate them as a cultural snapshot, a societal conversation-starter, a glimpse of the zeitgeist – and possibly, practically, as a way to pad my own library-hold-request list and stave off that dreaded state of Nothing To Read. Enjoy!
