Zane Gray heads 1920’s bestselling novels list

Copyright protection for most novels of the Roaring Twenties has expired. As a consequence, all of the 1920 bestsellers are available in digital format. Links in the list below are to the Gutenberg Project unless otherwise marked.

If you prefer print to pixels, you’ll find some of the books still around: paper those days was good quality.

1 The Man of the Forest by Zane Gray is still not to hard to find in hardback,  paperback, and large print versions. If your library system doesn’t have a copy, check  Project Gutenberg.
2    Kindred of the Dust by Peter B. Kyne.
3    The Re-Creation of Brian Kent by Harold Bell Wright
4    The River’s End by James Oliver Curwood
5    A Man for the Ages by Irving Bacheller
6    Mary-Marie by Eleanor H. Porter is available from the Electronic Text Center, University of Virginia Library
7    The Portygee by Joseph C. Lincoln
8    The Great Impersonation by E. Phillips Oppenheim
9    The Lamp in the Desert by  Ethel M. Dell
10    Harriet and the Piper by Kathleen Norris

I make big ideas simple for learners. In eight sentences, 34 words, I taught teens and adults to write competently. Now I'm writing guides to turn willing volunteers into great nursing home visitors.
