From the Wall Street Journal: "'The Great American Read,' a new initiative from PBS, set out to produce a list of America’s 100 favorite works of fiction. The alphabetical list (the books aren't ranked) was released this spring, based on a poll of more than 7,000 American readers. The results of the poll were winnowed down by an advisory panel of 'literary industry professionals' using a few rules: The books had to be published (though not necessarily written) in English, with a series like 'Harry Potter' counted as one title, and there could be no more than one book per author."

I've read a lot of these, but "The Sirens of Titan" over "Slaughterhouse Five" or "Cat's Cradle" baffles me, I've read almost everything he wrote. Maybe it's time to reread it.
