Saved by the Classics

the_year_of_reading_dangerously_by_andy_millerThe Year of Reading Dangerously: How Fifty Great Books (and Two Not-So-Great Ones) Saved My Life (Harper Perennial, $15) is booklover Andy Miller’s attempt to become well read in a single year by tackling 50 classics as he approaches his 40th birthday.
