Lost Book Club

Anyone who has watched Lost will know that books were a big part of the first 3 seasons. These are the books that are either physically seen, mostly being read by Sawyer, or talked about between the characters. The writers have also commented in the extras that some of these titles influenced the show. Such as The Third Policeman, talked about in season 2, after mentioned on Lost the sales of the book in the following three weeks equalled what it had sold in the preceding six years.
