Are you kidding me?

Following a Twitter link, from rgriner (who blogs here), led me to this list of “The 100 Best Reads from 1983 to 2008” as selected by Entertainment Weekly. It made me sad. Sad, sad, sad.

They call them the new classics with Cormac McCarthy’s The Road at #1 and Jon Stewart’s America at #100. No doubt, every book on this list was a BIG seller. Was that their only criteria? But Potter was pushed to #2, so something else must have weighed in on their calculations. But what?

I agree that most of these titles should be on a list like this, but certainly not stacked this way. We may have to develop our own list. Hmmmmmm…
