Parade Magazine’s Best 75 Books of the Last 75 Years – Selected by Parnassus Books

Fun! Ann Patchett was asked by Parade magazine to select the “best” books of the last 75 years. Check out the list and read about their process here (and agree–or agree to disagree. 🙂 )

[W]hen I asked the staff at Parnassus Books, the Nashville store I co-own with Karen Hayes, to take it on as a group project, they were game. What we discovered in the process is how wildly we disagree about everything, except
 how much we love books. We wanted novels, sure, but we also wanted picture books, science
books, histories and young adult novels….”

— Ann Patchett

Here are a few books that lit up my heart to see again. What I love best about the piece? That trip down memory lane past so many original covers!
