    342 745 Ways to Herd Cats or tl;dr

    From May to November 2008. Make a list of 10 books you love/like and then pick three to read from the lists of other participants. In making a recommended book list, I avoided books that others have not already suggested. I also tried to go for variety. These are just 10 books I really like, and by no means are definitive.

    1. The Leopard by Giuseppe de Lampedussa
    2. The Complete Maus by Art Spielgman
    3. Howards End by E. M. Forster
    4. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
    5. The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
    6. The Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book by Bill Watterson
    7. Blindness by Jose Saramago
    8. The Griffin & Sabine Trilogy: Griffin & Sabine/ Sabine’s Notebook/ The Golden Mean by Nick Bantock
    9. Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik
    10. The Hours by Michael Cunningham
