Each of the last three years, I’ve had a conversation in January with Nate Pedersen about the novels that celebrated their one hundredth publishing birthdays in the just-ended year. The conversations have been posted on Fine Books & Collections blog.
The list of bestselling novels of 1916 contains names of authors still highly regarded today, as well as names of some scarcely remembered authors who were as well known in their day as J. K. Rowling and Tom Clancy in ours.
In a departure from my routine, since some folks may be looking for a novel to read on their mobile devices while traveling this summer, I’m going to link the titles to the Project Gutenberg pages where the novels can be downloaded and read for free.
As usual, however, the dates you can expect to see my reviews are in square brackets after the author’s name.
