Day 01 – The best book you read last year Day 02 – A book that you’ve read more than three times Day 03 – Your favorite series Day 04 – Favorite book of your favorite series Day 05 – A book that makes you happy Day 06 – A book that makes you sad Day 07 – Most underrated book I think bestsellers in general are underrated when it comes to literary criticism and reviews. Because I study literature, most teachers tend to overrate the classics and forget that there is a vast literary production nowadays. Such production, although partly created to sell, can also be very interesting and can be studied and respected as well. For example, The Weird Sisters, The Help and The Constant Gardener had more impact on my life than many 17th century classics. So, why do schools and universities still force children to read books they don’t relate to? The important thing is to teach people to love reading not only to read the classics. Bestsellers play an important role here, since they are interesting, make easy reading and can be very addictive! Related
