Help Choose America's Favorite Book.

100 books. 1 winner.

"The Great American Read" is an eight-part series that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey). It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience. Premiering May 22 at 7 p.m. episodes will feature appearances by celebrities, athletes, experts, authors and everyday Americans advocating for their favorite books.
