Grade(d) Books

From the Chronicle of Higher Education: Ms. Mentor (Emily Toth) provides her annual list of "Ackies" (academic novels) for your consideration. Top of the list is Isaac Asimov's "Foundation." In all of the entries--lots of legal issues. Ms. Mentor challenges you to evaluate the entries, or come up with your own candidates, and to send her suggestions for next year's list.

As an alternative, write your own "Ackie." A journey can begin with a single step, and a novel can begin with a single sentence.
