Newsweek recently named 50 books that they think are most relevant today. The Fifty Books for Our Times list can be found here.
I found the list pretty interesting, though I've only read a small handful of the books featured: Flannery O'Connor's "A Good Man is Hard to Find" (love it), Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass," Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" and
I glanced over all the titles and read the descriptions of those that caught my interest. Some sound interesting, others sound dull, but a couple in particular made me wonder if Newsweek has an agenda.
Maybe I'm just a natural skeptic because I tend to think everyone has an agenda (is that considered paranoia?).
Check out the list and let me know what you think about it in the comments.
