The Great American Read

PBS is going all out this summer with a online voting thing to pick the best novel. They have revealed the America’s 100 most-loved books/series. This list is very diverse as it ranges from the classics like The Count of Monte Cristo to some of the modern classics like Harry Potter. Yet this is a strange list as it also contains books like Fifty Shades of Grey, Twilight and even Ready Player One. Now I wouldn’t call any of these books “classics” or most loved by any shot.  Over in the United Kingdom they did a similar thing called The Big Read in 2003 where Lord of the Rings placed at the top of the chart. If it end like I assume it will either Lord of the Rings or The Great Gatsby will be ending up on top. To take a look at the complete list visit the website you can vote daily from the site or through Facebook or Twitter, so go vote for what you’d call the most popular book on this list.
