Imagine the following scenario: “[our Society] decided our culture was too cluttered. They created commissions to choose the hundred best of everything: Hundred Songs, Hundred Paintings, Hundred Stories, Hundred Poems. The rest were eliminated. Gone forever” (from Matched, a novel by Ally Condie). If you were to create criteria for which fiction books were to be kept in the top 100, with all others completely eliminated from life, would your summer reading of Station Eleven, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, or Life of Pi make it onto the list? Why or why not?
If you were to sort books into three categories—those read once, those to re-read, and those that should never be read—into which category would you place your summer reading of Station Eleven, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, or Life of Pi? Explain your reasoning for your choice.
