Ep 168: A century of good books (in a single year)
Today’s guest Tara Nichols is giving herself an eagle-eye view of the last century’s literary landscape. Her mission is to read one book published each year between 1920 and 2019. The challenge brings with it a lot of important questions… what is worth her time? Is it better to read the big important book from a given year, or the title she thinks she’ll enjoy most ? And thequestion she’s hoping to answer after the year is over… has literature changed in all this time?
Anne’s challenge? Pitching 3 books worthy of adding to her lineup, including a book that is considered by some to be “the best mystery story ever written.”
Are you ready? Let’s get to it!
