We asked you to tell us what you're reading these days and you certainly didn't disappoint!
Close to 2,700 of you shared your reader recommendations and they were good, bad, and 50 Shady. Here are the some of the top recommendations from last week’s Mother’s Day Box o’ Books Sweepstakes:
A lot of you are in the flapper, art deco, speakeasy mood – or just pre-gaming your next movie date – by reading The Great Gatsby and Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald.
Keeping it Classic
To Kill a Mockingbird, Atlas Shrugged, Gone with the Wind, Pride and Prejudice, The Hobbit – you’re revisiting some of your favorites.
Popular Series Are Still Going Strong
A few of you are reading the Game of Thrones, Hunger Games, and Harry Potter series. Hopefully not in the same sitting!
Your Dark Side
We got chills just seeing how many of you recommended multiple titles from Dean Koontz, Stephen King (Under the Dome a clear favorite) and his son Joe Hill (NOS4A2 was also high on the list).
Your Boldest Recommendations
Lots of erotic romance suggestions here, with the 50 Shades Trilogy, S.E.C.R.E.T., and a BDSM selection. Think we might have to turn on the air conditioning a little early, here in the office!
Keeping Reading in the Family
Moms and daughters alike commented that they were reading together, which is always a wonderful thing.

Tina Fey’s Bossypants, Maeve Binchy’s A Week in Winter, Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series, WILD, The Night Circus, and Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power round out the list of top recommendations.
