Earlier this week Buzzfeed posted a list titled 22 Books You Pretend You’ve Read But Actually Haven’t. It was a humorous take on the books that many people keep on their bookshelves but may have never actually opened. While I can say I have actually read most of these titles, there are some that I’m guilty of showcasing but never cracking (Crime and Punishment, I promise to get to you but I have to finish The Brothers Karamazov first!).
Apparently, I wasn’t alone as this list has been viewed 250,000+ times just this week. What connects all of the titles on this list is that they are almost all universally revered as classics and many of them are required reading for school-aged students around the world. That doesn’t mean you actually read them though, so we’ve created the complete list of these titles in Marketplace. The great thing about these titles is whether your users are reading them for the first time or rereading them again (I’ve lost count on the number of times I’ve read Of Mice and Men or anything by Charles Dickens) they are all highly important titles sure to circulate often.
Add these titles to your digital library today and you can even talk to your Collection Development Specialist about adding them to a featured collection!
