Browse the titles on this page to find book recommendations your colleagues consider to be great reads. It's hard to pick the one book that had the biggest impact on your life. This is not necessarily your favorite book or the book you've reread the most, but the book that meant the most to you. Please fill out the short form below to recommend a book title you consider to be a great read; even better, share the reasons why you recommend it. Results will appear on this guide. 

Your favorite book or most influential book may become someone else's.

"In a serendipitous event, I happened to select the card of my most beloved text, Little Women! I spent a week in London learning about the Transcendentalists and even visited the Orchard House. This book was the reason I became an English major." Elizabeth Perkins, Provost, Florissant Valley 

The Secret Garden, Dandelion Wine, and White Fang. Recommended by Nancy Bush, Arts & Humanities Clerk, FV
