Booking Through Thursday

Jeanne came across this list of previous years' best sellers, and thought it might be fun to base some of our questions on them.

  1. In 1956, these were the top ten best sellers for the year. Have you read any of them?
    1. Don't Go Near the Water, William Brinkley
    2. The Last Hurrah, Edwin O'Connor
    3. Peyton Place, Grace Metalious
    4. Auntie Mame, Patrick Dennis
    5. Eloise, Kay Thompson
    6. Andersonville, MacKinlay Kantor
    7. A Certain Smile, Françoise Sagan
    8. The Tribe That Lost Its Head, Nicholas Monsarrat
    9. The Mandarins, Simone de Beauvoir
    10. Boon Island, Kenneth Roberts
    No, I must admit I haven't read any of these.
  2. Which ones have you read? Did you like them? See above.
  3. If you're like me and haven't read a single one, which ones have you heard of? Peyton Place, Auntie Mame and The Mandarins.
  4. Will you be putting any of these books in your reading list? It's hard to say. I'll need to do a bit of research first to decide.
