Carryovers from 1940

Two novels on the 1941 bestseller list were also on the 1940 list.  Their reviews were posted along with those for the year they made their first appearance.

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway, which was in fourth place in 1940, slipped to fifth in 1941.

Oliver Wiswell by Kenneth Roberts, which was in seventh place in 1940 crept up to sixth place in 1940.

If you didn’t read them last year when they were in the rota, look for them now. They are worth reading.
