America’s 100 Best-Loved Novels

Posted by lisap on

PBS recently announced The Great American Read List of America’s 100 Favorite Novels. The Great American Read is part of a new PBS series and multi-platform initiative that celebrates the joy of reading and books we love.

The list is the first step in The Great American Read’s quest to choose “America’s Best-Loved Novel” and, according to Paula Kerger, PBS President and CEO, is intended to “inspire a national conversation about beloved books and the power of reading.”

The List of America’s 100 Favorite Novels is limited to fiction books from anywhere in the world, as long as it was published in English. It contains books as far back as the 1600s, includes beloved world literature and contemporary best sellers and represents diverse categories from classics to sci-fi/fantasy.

Check out the list, organized by genre, with links directly to the Fauquier County Public Library’s catalog.  Then re-visit your favorites or explore others to add to your reading list!
