A Year of Literary Greatness reading list
A bit about: A Year of Literary Greatness is, by far, our shortest list. Counting in at twelve books, this list is comprised of one title per month.
Why it’s important: This list is a good jumping off place for beginners.If you’re just not sure about the whole “literature” thing – if you just want to pick up a book and read a good story, then give this list a try.
