The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)
by Suzanne Collins

To Kill a Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird
by Harper Lee
Staff Pick
We didn't read this in high school. The assigned book was The Scarlet Letter, which was already a favorite of mine. Recently, however, I decided that I'd ignored To Kill a Mockingbird for too long. If you haven't read it, or if it's been awhile since you... (read more)

East of Eden
East of Eden
by John Steinbeck
Staff Pick
I was once told a good novel will set its tenor by the end of its first page, so lately I've been skimming the first page of prospective reads to test this theory. When I did this with Steinbeck's East of Eden, I couldn't stop; the assault of great... (read more)

The Old Man and the Sea
The Old Man and the Sea
by Ernest Hemingway
Staff Pick
Despite a long and varied literate life, I somehow made it to 2010 without having ever read Hemingway, even compulsory high-school Hemingway. Intimidated by his bravado and bullfighting, I steered clear of ol' Papa. It only hit me a few months ago, after... (read more)

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary
Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary
by David Sedaris
Staff Pick
Sedaris diverges from his usual essays to give us a book of fables. Like all good fables and fairy tales, they're pretty gruesome and horrifying, and there's most always a moral to be found. These include a healthy dose of charm and wit, though. Ian... (read more)

Outlander
Outlander
by Diana Gabaldon
Staff Pick
History, time travel, Highland lore, romance, battle, dead sexy Scottish men, and well-written repartee... I dare you to find one thing in that list that doesn't sound completely riveting. You can't do it, can you? Outlander may technically be... (read more)

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
by Malcolm Gladwell

Somewhere along the way to guru-dom, Malcolm Gladwell got tagged as a business writer. Fair enough — The Tipping Point speaks more powerfully to the principles of succesful marketing than any pedestrian semester in the classroom. But while raves from... (read more)
