Of the 1933 bestsellers, only one is a holdover from 1932. The Magnificent Obsession by Lloyd C. Douglas moved from eighth place on the 1932 list to fourth place in 1933. The nine other novels on the 1933 list are a diverse lot. Every novel reader ought to find one to love and possibly one to hate.
