Reading and Books

September 11, 2014

It’s a book kind of day. First up is encouraging news about the millennials. Adrienne LaFrance for The Atlantic reports on Pew poll in Millenials Are Out-Reading Older Generations. Interesting info; libraries beware!

From BuzzFeed I saw How Many of the Greatest Books by Women Have You Read? by staffer Arianna Rebolini. I skipped it, but I also skipped 100 Must-Read Books: The Essential Man’s Library at Both lists seemed too parochial!

Now, being who I am, Have You Read the 200 ‘Best American Novels’? by Victoria Fleischer for the PBS Newshour caught my eye. The easy answer is no. Next come “not enough” and, finally, there’s 23!

So then I saw an FB post from a friend—actually, he’s a big part of why you get Mark Rubin Writes every day—with a reference to 100 Novels Everyone Should Read from The Telegraph in London. 13; not much better!
