September Reading Challenge: The PBS Book List

The Public Broadcast System (PBS) created a list called "America's 100 Most-Loved Books" and were asking readers to vote for favorites. I perused their page and counted thirty-eight that I've read, listened to, or even watched and found several that were on my TBR pile. Guess now's as good a time as any to push those to the top for September's Reading Challenge: The PBS Book List

Great American Reads
September Reading Challenge: The PBS Book List

1.) I'm not much for sci-fi stories, except for the occasional movie, even though we have a shelf full of Le Guin, Asimov, Herbert and more. That's my husband's genre, and he'll cry tears of joy when he sees me open up this book: Dune by Frank Herbert

2.) A librarian friend sent me The Help by Kathryn Stockett* with a note tucked inside. It said, "I thoroughly enjoyed this book."

3.) Lots of people raved about the plot twist in Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and even with a movie out and 44,000 reviews on Amazon, I'm still in the dark. Perhaps that will change this month.

4.) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak was referenced frequently at a writing conference I attended a couple years ago as an example of good writing. Color me curious.

5.) I've read two of John Green's books and am hoping I can get through a third. I'm sorry to admit, the struggle is real. Hopefully, Looking for Alaska by John Green will change all that, especially since it's a Printz Award winner, hosting a big gold sticker. *bling-bling*

* A recommended read!


"So many books, so little time!"
