Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading

Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading - Nina Sankovitch I saw the author speak at the Harvard Book Store in July. I am inspired by her story and intrigued to read the reviews on the blog that chronicled her experience of reading 365 books in 365 days by 365 different authors. The book gives the back story and the experience of reading those books, and it's a worthwhile read. But I think I'm most interested in reading the book reviews and mining the list of books read for possible leads at this point. Besides inspiring me that it's okay to make reading such a big part of one's life, it also inspired me to broaden my reading horizons and sample more unknown to me writers and different cultures.
