LibrarianRyan I know what‘s going to win, but come on, the Great American Read should not be a British book. 12mo
JaclynW @LibrarianRyan Good point! 12mo
Amandajoy @LibrarianRyan that was my confusion with the whole thing. Why were there so many British novels? Don‘t get me wrong, I love a good British novel, but I think we missed the point. Or at least I did. 12mo

DGRachel @LibrarianRyan You are the first person I‘ve seen that agrees with me. I love novels written by international authors, but I feel the Great American Read should be written by an American. It‘s in the title! It doesn‘t have to be one of the DWM, but I do think it should be an American. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 12mo
LibrarianRyan @DGRachel 🤓👍🏻. I love the show and everything. And it might be interesting to see if PBS does a spin off that just covers certain things. Plus think off all they great books they missed because of all the non American classics on the list. 12mo
rwmg @LibrarianRyan @Amandajoy @DGRachel I wondered that at first and then decided it's the Great American READ not the Great American WRITE so it's books Americans enjoy reading, wherever they come from 12mo
Amandajoy @rwmg I didn‘t think about it from that perspective. 12mo
Peddler410 @rwmg I totally agree. 12mo

LibrarianRyan Interesting match up. Old classic vs new classic. Hummmmm🧐 12mo
Caterina Aww I wish The Color Purple had done better 💔 12mo
TheLudicReader C‘mon. It‘s not fair to pit these two together. 12mo
Peddler410 I had to go with Anne because twice I had started The Book Thief and I have yet to read it all the way through 😐 12mo

Reviewsbylola LD no question. 12mo

MrBook @LibrarianRyan @Peddler410 So were the two of us. Only won by one vote though, so at least it wasn't a major upset sort of thing. 12mo
Zelma Wow, I knew that would be a knock down, drag out fight. What a finish! 12mo

Libby1 I hated BOTH of these! 🤣 13mo
Peddler410 Gone with the Wind got me through the summer of 1988 — my grandpa‘s death. I think that might be next year‘s epic reread. 13mo
