Your Favorite Book
Beginning in April the Queens public Library system will be holding a Big Read event. Participants will read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The title refers to the temperature at which paper burns. A dystopian society is depicted with books outlawed and the role of "firemen" to burn books. A resistance group arises, and to save great literature from being lost forever, members of this group each commit a book to memory.
If you had to memorize a single book to save it from being lost forever, which book would you choose? Why ?
This is the decision characters in Fahrenheit 451 face. Now you can also vote for your favorite book. See if your book makes the top ten choices. The winning books will be announced May 1st.
