The Library of Congress released a list of the top "Books that Shaped America" as part of its multi-year "Celebration of the Book."
Librarian of Congress James H. Billington states “It is not a register of the ‘best’ American books – although many of them fit that description. Rather, the list is intended to spark a national conversation on books written by Americans that have influenced our lives, whether they appear on this initial list or not.” Below is a list of ten of the books on the list. So, what do you think? What are some of the books that helped shape america or what are some books that helped shape you? Let us know on Twitter. Or Tweet books that shaped you with the following hashtag: #booksthatshapedme.
