A worthy list indeed; I may add all of these to my To Read list! I’m usually not interested in book reviewers. This is the first time I’ve come across Maureen Corrigan, and I think I’m a fan. From the way she writes it’s evident she is intelligent, a prolific reader and lover of books.
“There are books full of great writing that don’t have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story. Don’t be like the book-snobs who won’t do that. Read sometimes for the words – the language. Don’t be like the play-it-safers that won’t do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.”
– Stephen King
