OverDrive Library-Enabled PBS “Great American Read”

This page is similar to my NPR Books We Love mashup with OverDrive libraries, but only supports the 100 books that were part of PBS' 2018 eight-part series, The Great American Read. The “Rank” displayed for each book is the result of PBS viewers' votes. Over 4 million votes were cast over the course of six months.

“The Great American Read was an eight-part series with viewer participation to select America’s favorite novel, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels.”

Note: Some of the selections in this list refer to series. In those cases, this page might not find the exact match for a single book. If that is the case, please use the "Search for" links to search by author's name. In some cases, OverDrive may provide false matches for a book or series.
