1,000 Books to Read Before You Die by James Mustich

Staff Pick

James Mustich’s involvement with the book business stretches back nearly four decades and has included not only time as an executive with Barnes & Noble but a lengthy stint publishing his own marvelous mail order book catalog, A Common Reader. And if I were as erudite, entertaining, insightful, and articulate as he is, I could have come up with 1,000 reasons to buy his book, 1,000 Books to Read Before You Die (Workman, $35). But here’s at least one: Whether you’re looking for something to read for personal edification or fun, for escapism or relevance, you can survey the literary world with Mustich as an experienced, enthusiastic guide. His work is an essential resource for anyone anywhere plagued by that infernal question: What do I read next? As the headline of a Washington Post review put it, the book is “the ultimate literary bucket list.”
