The Great American Read


Have you heard about the Great American Read?  In May, PBS will premiere an eight-part television series that asks, “What is America’s favorite book?” The two-hour premiere debuts on May 22 and is hosted by Meredith Vieira. The television series features entertaining and informative documentary segments, with compelling testimonials from celebrities, authors, notable Americans and book lovers across the country. It is comprised of a two-hour launch episode, five one-hour theme episodes, and a finale, in which the results are announced of a nationwide vote to choose America’s best-loved book.


Just this week, PBS posted its list of “100 most-loved books.” This list was created using a public opinion polling service and about 7,200 responded. 

If you're wondering what books are on this list and how many of the 100 books have you read--take the quiz!
