The National Book Foundation’s 2012 Best Of BookUp Selections

Texas WinnersFor the first time ever, we present the Best of BookUp Selections, a summer reading list straight from the source: our BookUp students! We asked the students at all six sites in New York City and Texas to vote on their top two favorite books read in BookUp during the 2011-2012 year. One site had a unanimous favorite, and others couldn’t limit their choices to just two. University Settlement students ranked all of the books read and then averaged each book’s individual score by rating them in the following categories: Relatability, Readability, Likability, Attractiveness, Universality, and Importance.
