The Commandants Professional Reading List (CPRL) is a list of books most pertinent for professional development and critical thinking at each level. The CPRL is arranged into two sections: “Commandants Choice” and “Grade Levels.” Each Marine shall read a minimum of five books from the “Commandants Choice” or “Grade Level” sections each year.
The Grade Level titles are separated into five levels for both enlisted Marines and officers. These levels coincide with specific ranks and Marines should attempt to read all titles within their level prior to proceeding to a higher level. Completion of the CPRL reading requirement shall be noted in the individual Marines fitness report or taken into account when assigning Proficiency/Conduct marks. How a Marine demonstrates completion of the annual requirement is at the discretion of the commander.
