Hold on to your dust jackets.

screen shot folders of book reviewsWe’ve just finished the 1927 bestsellers and now we’re going jump ahead 40 years to tackle the 1967 bestselling novels.

I’ve previously reviewed the bestsellers of 1937, 1947 and 1957 here at GreatPenformances. (The lists and links to the reviews are on the bestsellers 1930-1969 page accessible from the tab at the top of the page.)

I’m sure you’ll spot names of authors  on the 1967 list whom you’ve seen on other years’ bestseller lists. And there are some titles which are probably more familiar to us from movies and television than as books.
