"Are you tired of reading bestsellers that you can’t remember a week later?
Is your book group running out of great selections? Take a novel approach to some of the greatest stories ever told. A Novel Idea: A New Look at Some Old Books offers thirty-six classic works of literature, presented with plot synopses, discussion questions and new insights into what makes these books both timeless and timely.

So let’s get back to the best books!
