Preview of bestselling novel reviews coming in 2017

Happy 2017, novel readers.

If all goes as planned, in 2017 I’ll reach my goal of reading and reviewing each of the bestselling novels published between 1900 and 1969. Most of the novels I’ll review this year are bestsellers celebrating their publication on a year ending in a “7” between those dates.

This year I’ll post reviews in chronological order, beginning with the bestsellers of 1907, 1917, and 1927.

Then I’ll skip ahead to 1967. (I previously reviewed the bestsellers of ’37, ’47 and ’57.)

I end my project by reviewing the bestselling novels of 1968 and 1969.
