The 10 most read stories of the year featured Jesuits, academics, presidents, bibliophiles, gardeners and, yes, even zombies! Here's the list… 

1. "I Am the Future of… Politics"- Eric Chalmers, president of Student Government at Seattle University, is ready for a career in politics (608 unique views)

5. "Well Read"- Kerry Keller-Ash is about to complete a quest to read 100 classics (319 unique views)

(Editor's note: In putting this list together, we wondered how Keller-Ash's literary journey turned out. The last we had heard, she was slogging her way through Finnegan's Wake , the final book she needed to read to complete the 100 classics. She responded: "I have made it about 60 pages farther in Finnegan's Wake  since we last talked. Haven't opened it in months. I have however started the Radcliffe's Rival 100 Best Novels List. Mostly because of the great overlap between the two lists I only have 29 to read. I started in March and have read 11." And guess which book is on the list of the 18 she has yet to read...You got it-"my old pal Finnegan's Wake," as Keller-Ash puts it.)
