Art Garfunkel is on a reading odyssey too

Art Garfunkel is on a reading odyssey too.

If you are interested in what he has read, then you can visit his website where he’s posted the more than 1,000 books he’s read since 1968. 

You can browse year-by-year so you can see that in 1968 Art Garfunkel read books you might expect like The Beatles by Hunter Davies. But you can also see that in that fateful year he also read Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckelberry Finn and Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

This year – the year of our Darwin150 campaign – he read the wonderful book, The Beak of the Finch, by Jonathan Weiner. You can see Professor Weiner’s Darwin150 webcast lecture for the Reading Odyssey here:
