Last fall, PBS launched a special series revolving around the books Americans consider the best called The Great American Read. The list includes 100 classic and modern works that cover a variety of topics. I aim to spend however long it takes reading, researching and writing about these books. Here on my blog, I am sharing my updates with you. Together we can delve into what makes these books worthy of our consideration.


First up, we have:

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger (#30)

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (#41)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (#3)
