This is the book of 1,000 essential titles that provides a lifelong bucket list for anyone who loves to read. Arranged alphabetically by author, the 1000 essays in the illustrated book reveal why each title is vital, describing it with the special enthusiasm readers summon to recommend books to a friend. The list runs the gamut from the expected (Shakespeare, Dickens, Hemingway) to unexpected titles such as “Harold And The Purple Crayon” and “Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret”. Following each entry are rich endnotes that include publication dates and preferred editions, other books by the same author, related books to try, and listings of worthy adaptations, including movies and audio books. In total, more than six thousand titles by thirty-five hundred authors are recommended. Hardbound, 960 pages. 9 1/2" H x 7" W x 2" D. (3 1/2 lbs.)
