What People Think You Should Be Reading

A list of book lists. Every week I’ll bring you the best reading lists from around the web, because the problem you have is figuring out what books to read — not finding the time to read them.

Not included is the Count of Monte Cristo, which is something everyone should read

10 Poetry Collections For People Who Think They Don’t Like Poetry


The Truth is, we could all use a little poetry in our lives. I suggest memorizing a few poems to let them grow your soul from the inside. A few of my favorite and easy to read poets are: Frank O’Hara, Bukowski, Jorge Luis Borges, and Billy Collins.

7 literary journals you should read


I didn’t start reading Lit Mags until last year. They are fun when you don’t want to invest in a book. Just one of these Journals will last me about a month or two, so don’t let the prices get you down. I also recommend McSweeney’s, Tin House, and N+1 — I have subscriptions to all of these.

Every Monday I’ll be giving you the best reading lists I’ve found. So stay tuned for more!
