A Literary Bucket List

We’ve selected 21 reading categories that run the gamut from ‘A Book by an Inkling’ and ‘A Book by Jane Austen’ to ‘A Weird Book’ and ‘A Graphic Novel’. What does Miss Austen have to do with a book about how to goblinproof a chicken coop? Not much, honestly, but that’s the amazing thing about literature, isn’t it? The world of books is vast but most readers will stick to a small corner of it. We challenge you, book lovers and bibliophiles, to explore a little further with our literary bucket list.

Step 1: Starting with ‘A Science Fiction Book’, click through each category and take a look at the listed titles.
Step 2: Have you read one? Great! Cross the category off your list.
Step 3: Read one that isn’t mentioned? Cross it off and tell us what we missed.
Step 4: Coming up empty? Pick a book and read it!
