I recently finished “Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer,” (someone I know was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given about 10 months) and decided perhaps to switch to some good fiction to leave the cancer ward behind. PBS is holding The Great American Read this summer and I thought picking titles from their list would be interesting. It’s a mixed bag, to say the least. Here
I’ve read 23 of the titles. I’m wondering, should I just randomly select one that I haven’t read yet or should I look before I leap into something I may not enjoy?
