Are we what we read?

Midmorning 12/26 @ 9:00 a.m. talks about teen lit picks with Minnesota authors John Coy and David LaRochelle, both listed as recommended reading by teens. I checked out the full list of young adults' choices, and found books that are about adventure, loneliness, struggle, death, and relationships. It made me wonder if we are what we read, if what we read reflects us, or if we merely read to understand ourselves better. Probably all these reasons (possibly combined) and more.

What are young adults reading? What should they read? Join MPR's Minnesota Readers discussion group to talk about books.
