The NYT Best Seller when I was born, in January 1973, was “Jonathan Livingston Seagull,” by Richard Bach, published three years earlier. I’ve never read it or been interested in reading it, but I’m prompted to now by a post from a friend and fellow blogger.
According to Goodreads the “best” book to be released in the year of my birth is the wonderful, “The Princess Bride,” by William Goldman. Other notable titles published in 1973 include Vonnegut’s “Breakfast of Champions,” “A Wind in the Door,” the second book of Madeline L’Engel’s fantastical Time Quintet series, and “Gravity’s Rainbow,” by Thomas Pynchon.
This post was prompted by the 100 Word Challenge from Thin Spiral Notebook:
“Using “books” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied.” Click the link and follow Tara’s instructions to include your own post.
