Are you a lapsed reader? We understand—there's a lot of competition for your attention. Podcasts, streaming video, your newsfeed, social media...content everywhere. But, in our opinion, there's no beating the pleasure of slipping into a wonderful book—even if you have to do it in half-hour increments on a crowded train. So make this the year you #LoveReading again! The Library's just-released 125 Books We Love list has favorites of ours across many genres, but we've selected these below especially for people who are ready to get back into reading again. We think these books will draw you in, excite you, and set you back on the reading path.
