USA Today's Top 25 Most Memorable Books
USA Today is calling it 25 Books That Leave a Legacy. Ooooookay.
"USA TODAY's book editors and critics chose 25 titles that made an impact on readers and the publishing industry over the past quarter-century."
Oooookay. The term "legacy" still has me a bit confused. Dictionary.com defines "legacy" as, "anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor." Technically true, I suppose. And as you can see, the only way to become "a legacy" in the adult lit world is to become a phenomenon beyond all human reckoning. Hence, Harry Potter is the only kidlit on the list. FYI, kids.
