http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/galleries/2012/03/18/t...Top 10 Fiction and Nonfiction Books 1966 Versus 2012I've read one nonfiction from the 1966 list and am reading one from the 2012. I haven't read any of the fiction
Interesting, I guess. It seems like the year was cherry picked, but it's not surprising that bestsellers meant something different in 1966 than today. Though keep in mind that is with 46 years of hindsight.I haven't read anything from either 2012 list, and didn't see anything I plan to read.I had read In Cold Blood. Several of the other 1966 non-fiction books looked good also, but I don't read much non-fiction. I'll probably get The Embezzeler and Up the Down Staircase from the library. v/rTom

Thanks for sharing that!Amazing how many good authors/ books were on the '66 list. A bumper harvest! Good to see so many of my old favorites - Deighton, MacInnes, Greene, Michener, Ryan...Berne's 'Games people play' is a must read - great insights into how people interact with one another.
