Classics vs. Pop Culture

There's something to be said for the classics. There's also something to be said for recent successes.

Is one inherently better than the other?

Not necessarily.

You can make arguments for both sides of that topic, and here are a few:

Classics: Still (relatively) popular after many years Relatable characters Historical concepts we might learn from

Recent Popular books: Benefit from changing interpretations of literature Tailored to the modern audience Address present-day issues

With an eye toward providing reviews for a wide range of books while still enjoying ourselves, we'll try to do a little of both as we go. If you have a specific book you'd like us to take a look at, let us know in the comments, and we'll see if we can get our hands on a copy.

WARNING: You will notice a trend in the books I tend to review, because I will read the books I enjoy by default, and that will mean you'll get more of one sort than another. But I will do my best to broaden my horizons for your benefit.
