Essential New England-100 Books

The Boston Globe has picked the top 100 Books written about New England or by local New England authors. It’s a great interactive list that allows you to rate the choices and keep track of which you’ve read or plan to read.

The Globe’s top five:

1. Moby Dick by Herman Melville
2. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
3. Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey
4. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
5. A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

I love the Make Way for Ducklings choice, and Little Women and Owen Meany would also make my top five. But, I think Connecticut could be better represented on this list, don’t you?
