Students applying to the Schreyer Honors College at Penn State are asked to tell application reviewers a book that influenced them at any point in their life. I have collected those recommendations and provided them here. While I won't share why the students found the books influential, my hope is that the collection of books may spark an interest in others. Some of the books may have books the students were required to read in their English courses while others are books they may have read as a young child. Despite the motivation, these are the books potential incoming students have found influential.
