(But read some Shakespeare anyhow, just for the scorching burns in Much Ado About Nothing.) Then there were books that didn’t quite stand the test of time, or were so new we couldn’t tell whether they’d stand up.
We took your votes (more than 7,000 of them!) and with the help of our panel of expert judges — people so cool and so hilarious I’m surprised they even talked to me — created this list of 100 reads designed to make you laugh out loud.
