Last month, we asked you to send us a title of a book you love. It was really fun to learn about what kinds of books you’re reading – you have excellent taste!
Here are the books you recommended:
- Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini
- The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – Douglas Adams
- Infinite Jest – David Foster Wallace (The submitter called this “one of the great works of modern lit and MIT is in the middle of it!”)
- The Liars’ Club – Mary Karr
- Life of Pi – Yann Martel
- Scorecasting – Tobias Moskowitz & L. Jon Wertheim
- 1984 – George Orwell
- The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao – Junot Diaz
- Cronopios & Famas – Julio Cortázar & Paul Blackburn
- Sisters Brothers – Patrick deWitt
- Guns, Germs, and Steel – Jared Diamond
- Averno – Louise Gluck
We have a great track record: all but one of these books are available to borrow from the MIT Libraries, and you can request any of the books in the list.
We’re always happy to hear about things you like (and things you don’t). Tell us anything!
