The Simpsons has become a cultural institution over its three-decade run, offering razor-sharp satire of American life and sociopolitical issues. To book lovers, there are few greater representations on TV than the precocious and perpetually 8-years-old Lisa, a beacon of intelligence, insight and moral certitude in Springfield.

Often depicted reading great works of literature, a tumblr called The Lisa Simpson Book Club was launched to collect stills of every book and magazine she’s seen with throughout the series. From Poe and Ginsberg to Plath and Vidal, find a selection of Lisa Simpson’s vast library below.
