Reading List for 2014 from World Book Night

Looking for a new diet for 2014?  One that's low in fluff fiction and high on protein for your head and heart?  Check out this Reading List, the official picks for World Book Night.

WBN, an annual event celebrating the love of reading, is held on April 23.  Started in the UK in 2011 and joined by book lovers in the US in 2012,  selected volunteers recommend and give out their favorite reads to light or non-readers.   Last year I gave out one of my favorite classics, Fahrenheit 451, at a censorship discussion following the movie, Viva Cuba Libre: Rap is War!  

Find out how you can share stories to connect lives here and let us know which book on this year's list you like best.
