88 Books That Shaped America

The Library of Congress has published a list of 88 books that shaped America. You can see the list here in an article from the Chicago Tribune  the USA Today.

I count seven that I’ve read:

  • The Cat In The Hat (yes, it’s on there 🙂 )
  • Gone With The Wind
  • The Grapes of Wrath
  • The Jungle
  • The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
  • The Red Badge of Courage
  • The Scarlet Letter

Of these, the one I was most impacted by was Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle.

How many have you read?

Which do you think had a positive influence? A negative one?
