A list on the Fourth of July

On the Fourth of July I saw a list of 88 books that shaped America from the Library of Congress. I think the librarians of Congress have got a good list going here. I appreciate the inclusion of books for all ages (Where the Wild Things Are is on the list), and books from the past and the present. There are cookbooks too, a reminder of the many ways books influence us. I count 20 women authors on the list – of course I counted, what did you expect? – which is quite respectable.
What are your thoughts on the list?
