Book reviews for 2018 start Jan. 6

Happy New Year!

After a bit of a break to catch my breath after reviewing all the bestselling novels from 1900 to 1969, I’ve decided to push on with reading all the bestselling novels of the 20th century.

I’m going to try to get back on my twice-weekly schedule, with reviews published on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Looking at the lengths of the novels for the early 1970s, I almost gave up before I began. There are several 800 and 900-page novels among them. We’ll see how things go. If I can’t keep up the twice-a-week pace, I may have to cut back to once a week.

I’m going to work through the years’ lists in chronological order, and on each list work down from #1 down to #10.

I won’t be posting the each years’ bestseller lists and review dates in advance. That takes time better spent reading and reviewing.

To see what’s ahead, click the tab for the Bestsellers Lists; the 1970-1999 lists are in the bottom drop down menu.

Saturday I’ll publish my review of the #1 bestseller of 1970: Love Story.

I look forward to having you join me in reading and chatting about older fiction.
