Hemingway left a list of ”Must Read” books. Join the world’s most ambitious book club - where we’ll read and discuss them all, one chapter per day.
About the Hemingway List
In 1934an aspiring writer asked Ernest Hemingway what books to read in order to become a LITERARY GOD, and Hemingway actually wrote him a list. It contains 13 novels, 2 short stories, and 1 book of verse. Here is the actual document, straight from Papa's hand:
Today... we are reading our way through this list, one chapter per day, and discussing the day's chapter (via our subreddit), and turning the whole thing into a DAILY PODCAST.
Well, because this is the path to literary greatness - as prescribed by Hemingway himself.
Contributor - If you want to be part of the daily chapter discussion, you'll need to keep up with the podcast and join us on our subreddit. It's akin to being part of a massive, world-wide, ultra-ambitious book club. Your comments and insights will then become part of the podcast.
