88 Books That Shaped America

The Library of Congress has published a list of 88 books, all by American authors, that have shaped America. The earliest book on the list was published in 1751 and the latest in 2002. Only Benjamin Franklin was worthy of a repeat with three of his books on the list. Having read many of the books, I can see where this could lead to many discussions among friends and colleagues.

For more information on the list, including a video describing some of the selected books visit the Library of Congress website at: http://www.loc.gov/bookfest/ or download the video directly: http://stream.media.loc.gov/nbf12/celebrationbook.mp4
