As part of my current fascination with bestsellers I found this:

A list of American bestsellers from the 1900s

As you'd expect there's a lot of people you've never heard of combined with a surprising amount of Winston Churchill. Plus there's Mrs Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch, a bestseller in 1902 and 1903 so you know it must be good. I am still wondering about that one.

Plus I found Bestsellers: Popular Fiction Since 1900 about UK bestsellers. It's more of an overview and it doesn't look like it looks at the big sellers, the phenomenon books, but still interesting.

That list brought back some memories. Good ol' Taylor Caldwell; you probably can't even find her stuff in the libraries any more.

I really wish some of these were available. I find myself wanting to read The Judgment House by Sir Gilbert Parke. Doesn't that sound potentially quite kinky? :P
