    The Perpetual AW Book Chain

    Now that the Great AW Song Chain is chugging along nicely, let's see how a Book Chain does.

    Example: The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck.

    Response #1: What's eating Gilbert Grape - Peter Hedges.

    Response #2: Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert. (ETA: Ooh! Double points for two links in the same response!)

    ...

    The Tiger's Wife - Tea Obreht
