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, Fran├žoise Sagan
    8. The Tribe That Lost Its Head, Nicholas Monsarrat
    9. The Mandarins, Simone de Beauvoir
    10. Boon Island, Kenneth Roberts

    No, I haven't read any of them.

  2. Which ones have you read? Did you like them?None.

  3. If you're like me and haven't read a single one, which ones have you heard of? 1, 3, 4, and 7

  4. Will you be putting any of these books in your reading list?Possibly in the future, but I'm booked up for summer(as you can see above)

I hope you enjoy the Belgariad, Kim. I think DH will want to strangle me if I pick it up again before the year is out. LOL You have a good-looking summer reading list, nice variety.
