A Fun Distraction
Do you know what books were on the New York Times best seller list ten years ago? Twenty? How about the week you were born?
The #1 fiction book the week of my birth: The View From Pompey's Head by Hamilton Basso. The book is a nifty little mystery involving a famous writer.
The #1 non-fiction: The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. Not sure where you would have needed to be for the last half-century or so not to have heard of this one.
Here's the link to make your own discoveries. (Note you need to enter the day before the month.)
CR: I'm picking a new one today! Like unwrapping a present. I finished L.J. Seller's Secrets to Die For about 2:30 this morning. Love it when I finish a satisfying book. Thanks, L.J.!
It's all better with friends.
