The Great American Read on PBS

Well, color me jealous! This looks like a fantastic series, and I might have to break my pledge to not watch that much TV this year for this show. And with I might, I of course mean I will! The Great American Read promises to be a reader’s delight and will definitely lead to more books being added to my TBR. The show is about the 100 of America’s best-loved novels and viewers can vote for their favorite which will be revealed in the last episode. Check out the show’s ABOUT page for more info and/or watch this video:

The book list seems well rounded to me and includes FOUR of my all-time favorites:

 

 

The Little Prince, The Alchemist, Little Women, and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I am going to have to start thinking about for which I will cast my vote! Based on the theme of this blog, you can probably guess where I’ll end up.

So, set your reminders for May 22nd 8pm EST, to watch the premiere on PBS. Maybe we can chat about it during the show on Twitter. Find me @evilbibliotaph. I will be tweeting my thoughts.
