Are you looking for a good Book and your favorite authors have nothing new out?

Librarians are frequently asked for recommendations on favorite authors or titles to read. While we enjoy these types of discussions, it can sometimes be difficult to match title to reader. As we move toward the holiday season and that yearly rite of making New Year’s Resolutions, I thought you might be interested in this list of 100 Best 20th Century Books from the “Hungry Mind Review”. It includes some nonfiction titles and more contemporary, female and ethnic authors than the traditional Modern Library list. Try a few of these titles and see if you don’t feel a little more “well read”. You may even be able to initiate an animated literary discussion at that next boring holiday office party!
