The Most Popular Books, by the Year

Are you curious which book was most popular the year you were born?

The most popular book the year I was born was Charlotte’s Web, but it would take me more than 20 years to read it. Let me rephrase; I would be 22 before I read it. That’s better, although I was probably a slow reader those first few years.

I did not see what data used, but you will recognize many or maybe all the titles. The Giver and Catcher in the Rye are two of my favorites on the list that covers 1945 through 2019. I wonder, though, if someone born in 2019 is ready forThe Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides.
