What was the bestselling novel or non-fiction book the week you were born? Follow this link to a delightful search engine on Biblioz, an Australian company. Make sure you type the date first (not the month).
It is a bit startling to see how fleeting the popularity of books can be. They were the most popular in the country at the time! But I have to admit that I don’t recognize most of the novelists.
My #1 novel was Anatomy of a Murder by Robert Traver.
My #1 non-fiction was Masters of Deceit by J. Edgar Hoover.
