  1. I’ve read 4 of them & would have a hard time picking a favorite from Things Fall Apart, Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, Secret Life of Bees; I know of several more of them as classics or current bestsellers; I really enjoy seeing the list because it reminds me of what I’ve been meaning to read. So thank you for this monthly service to your members!

    These lists are so helpful. I run a small volunteer run library in a remote part of New Zealand and, as we haven’t a lot of money, use Better World to source many of our books.

  3. Wow, I found a few that I had actually read. Now, my problem. I was asking for a book by title, and got page one of 2565 PAGES to thumb through. I looked at 17 before I gave up. Can’t you get a little closer to giving me the book itself without the whole library attached? The book in question is Make Haste from Babylon.
