Sunny Summer Reads from 1910

For the next few weeks until Labor Day marks the official end of America’s summer, I’m going to go back to pick up some bestsellers from 1910 that I hadn’t located when their turn came in my normal schedule. Most of them are frivolous and forgettable, and a couple are quite funny. I’ve included links to free, downloadable versions from Project Gutenberg so you can fill up your e-reader, find a comfy spot in the shade, and settle down to read on a hot August afternoon.

Here is the entire 1910 list, with the dates of the review are scheduled to be published.  The Rosary is the only novel on the list I previously reviewed here.

  1. The Rosary  by Florence Barclay
  2. A Modern Chronicle by Winston Churchill [Aug.7]
  3. The Wild Olive by Anonymous (Basil King) [Aug.11]
  4. Max by Katherine Cecil Thurston[Aug.14]
  5. The Kingdom of Slender Swords by Hallie Erminie Rives [Aug.18]
  6. Simon the Jester by William J. Locke [Aug21]
  7. Lord Loveland Discovers America by C.N. Williamson & A.M Williamson [Aug.25]
  8. The Window at the White Cat by Mary Roberts Rinehart [Aug.28]
  9. Mary Make-Believe by Eleanor Hallowell Abbott [Sept. 1]
  10. When a Man Marries by Mary Roberts Rinehart [Sept.4]

Did you notice Mary Roberts Rinehart had two bestsellers on the list. How often does that happen?

I'm passionate about helping people learn through the medium of nonfiction writing. Although I occasionally have an idea of my own, I mostly build education tools by recycling and repurposing other folks' ideas.
