What books most influenced work in America? The U.S. Department of Labor has assembled an initial list of Books That Shaped Work in America, among them Ben Franklin's "Poor Richard's Improved" and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's "My Beloved World." The project, a partnership between the U.S. Department of Labor and the Library of Congress' Center for the Book, is part of the Labor Department's centennial celebration. The site "explores the dignity of work and our progress in expanding America's fundamental promise of opportunity for all through the lens of literature," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez, who was assisted by eight former labor secretaries in compiling the initial list. Now the public is invited to expand it. Visit www.dol.gov/books/form to suggest a book.
