Ever wish you could read like a cartoon character? The Lisa Simpson Book Club Tumblr blog has been collecting the many book references made by Lisa on the long running cartoon, The Simpsons.
The inspiring (and funny) reading list collects references to everybody from Danielle Steele to Lillian Hellman to Joyce Carol Oates. Above, we’ve embedded a Scrabble scene from the early days of the cartoon show to illustrate Lisa’s well-read personality.
Here is a particularly funny quote from the show: “Well, I think we should invest in a set of The Great Books Of Western Civilization. Look at this ad from The New Republic For Kids: Each month, a new classic will be delivered to our door. Paradise Regained, Martin Cheselwitt or Herman Melville’s twin-classics Omoo and Typee.”
