One thing may library patrons (and staff!) have in common is a wish to have read more classic literature. Where to start? Which titles to read? In this series, I'll highlight some of the books that may be able to help.
Book Smart: Your Essential Reading List for Becoming a Literary Genius in 365 Days by Jane Mallison. If you are interested in dropping a few lines from really good books in your next conversation, this could be the book for you. The author provides monthly 'homework' with a themed reading list for each month. If you are pressed for time, you could just scrape by and read the two page description of each book. There are a lot of modern titles here, and you will surely recognize more than a few that have been made into movies.
Stay tuned for more guidebooks to literature.
