The Year You Were Born

1958, The year I was born Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov was the most popular book. I found a first American edition for sale for $200. I've never read it. I guess I should!

What was the most popular book the year you were born? Find out!

  1. 1952: The Catcher in the Rye. Not one of my favorite books.

  2. Doctor Zhivago, I enjoyed that one anyway.

  3. 1954. I couldn't get the slide show to work for me so I Googled it. I think it depends on which publisher reports it, but Not As a Stranger by Morton Thompson came up several times. I've never heard of it and doubt if I'll ever read it.

    I agree with you, Joan. The Catcher in the Rye was definitely not one of my favorite books. I would subtitle it: Teenage boy proves how grown-up he is by using the F word many many times.
