'Lost' Literature: Not Just For Desert Islands

I am a Lost addict.

I think constantly about the ABC drama: when I'm in the shower, walking my dog, even when I'm watching other TV shows.

I also frequently visit my local library to dig up copies of the books that have appeared on the show. Hold up, you say. There's literature on Lost?

Oh, yes, there is. Lost may center around a mystical island, but it's also about larger themes like religious faith and the importance of community — the stuff of memorable novels. Happily, the show's writers weave in so many literary references that each installment also opens up a world of transcendent reading. Here are three books I re-fell in love with courtesy of Lost.
