  1. 28/01/1963: “Unfortunately there are some weeks where no bestseller lists were compiled by the New York Times, usually due to industrial action – Sorry!”


  2. I just discovered your Kate Shugak mysteries while on an Alaskan cruise. (Literally just discovered. I haven’t even adjusted to being back on land yet.) I enjoyed “A Cold Day for Murder”, and I would love to interview you on my blog (the website address I left here). You can check out the other author interviews to verify that I am serious. Please let me know if you are interested. I make the process as painless as possible. 🙂

  3. The Agony and the Ecstasy, Irving Stone was number 1. Good book which, amazingly, I have actually read. But most exciting is To Kill a Mockingbird was number 3, my favorite book of all time!

  5. Cool! A favorite author was #1, Herman Wouk with ‘The Winds of War’ & #2 was a book I’ve always despised (freshman English, ugh) ‘Jonathon Livingston Seagull. Neat tool!

  6. My birth year is 1942. The list was by the whole year. I recognized 3 of the authors on the fiction list and know I read at least one of their books over time. Douglas, Steinbeck and Buck. The title I know I read for sure is THE ROBE. Did you know they published by carving the books by chisel in stone in 1942? e-books were not even anyone’s dream.
