Top Ten Books–Where to Start

If you’re having deciding which book(s) you might like to read (which would be understandable, given that there are a lot of books available), consider browsing the curated lists at a site like One Grand Books.   They have lists of favorite books compiled by people from all walks of life and many nationalities.  Well, a broad swath of walks of life and nationalities, anyway.   Either choose a category (actors, writers, chef, designer, etc.) or choose All Curators from the bottom of the listing menu.

Here’s what One Grand says about the lists:

Grand lists is a curated arts site specializing in books and movies selected by 100 public figures and celebrities, ranging from designers, musicians, artists, actors, performers and directors, to politicians, novelists, scientists and athletes.

Honestly, it never occurred to me to wonder what Alice Waters, James Franco, or Gloria Steinem might consider “Desert Island Books”, but consider my curiosity piqued.
