The novels on the bestseller list for 1912 will appeal to a wide range of tastes. You may even find, as I did, that a well-written novel can make you belive their might just be something worth reading in a genre you think you dislike.
Each of the 1912 bestsellers is available to read free, courtesy of Project Gutenberg. The links for novels making their first appearance go directly to the Project Gutenberg page for that book. If the book is making its second appearance on the bestseller list, links will take you to my review which will direct you to the download page at Project Gutenberg.
