Calling all Android phone and tablet users! Our completely redesigned Android app is rolling out now and will be available to everyone within a few weeks. Every experience in the all-new app is faster and easier to use. Designed by readers for readers, it also includes new features to help you find even more books you’ll love.
Everyone loves a list—especially a list of books. To that end, people (including certain people at a nice place called Literary Hub) are always asking famous writers to give them lists of books they love, and famous writers are always doing it, because again, who doesn’t like a list of books, and especially when those books are your own favorites, and you get to talk about them again. While considering the proliferation of the high-profile literary listicle, I started wondering which books famous authors most often touted among their favorites. And as often happens, once I started wondering, I soon knew I was in for some math.
