Ever wonder how well-read you are? A recent BookRiot article by Jeff O’Neal, Editor-in-Chief & Co-founder of the site, may be able to answer your question. In “From Zero to Well-Read in 100 Books,” O’Neal gives readers a list of books that he believes make an individual “well-read,” including classics like To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee and Moby Dick by Herman Melville, and modern bestsellers like The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
” “Well-read,” O’Neal writes, “for this person then has a number of connotations: a familiarity with the monuments of Western literature, an at least passing interest in the high-points of world literature, a willingness to experience a breadth of genres, a special interest in the work of one’s immediate culture, a desire to share in the same reading experiences of many other readers, and an emphasis on the writing of the current day.”
Click here to see how many books you can cross off O’Neal’s list. I have 18 read so far and am looking forward to catching up on my new, summer reading list! Comment with your book number and share your thoughts about the titles that made the cut with your classmates!
