Books are timeless, it doesn’t matter if they were written over a hundred years ago or just yesterday, if they are written well then the story is just as vibrant and beautiful as the day it was first penned. Books don’t rely on special effects or owning a compatible device all you need to be able to do to enjoy a book from any era is read and I don’t know about you but I think I am pretty good at reading.
I’ve read classics written 300 years ago and books that will stay with me forever that still have wet ink and loved them all but have I read the most popular book from the year I was born? I had no idea but thanks to Good Housekeeping I can find out and (as long as you were born after 1930) now so can you.
The years 1930 -1975 are in this list, a link to the books from 1976 to the present year can be found on the link at the bottom of this page.
The controversial novel written by DH Lawrence was at the centre of an obscenity trial in 1960, and the copy used by the judge presiding over the case is now in further trouble. The copy belonging to the judge, Sir Laurence Byrne, is full of highlighted explicit passages, marked up by the judge’s wife Lady Dorothy.
The book was sold last year for £56,250 and the new owner planned to take it abroad but the book has been temporarily stopped from leaving the UK. The new owners must apply for a licence to take the book out of the UK as it is an ‘item of cultural significance’.
The UK government’s block means collectors have until 9 August to declare their intention to buy it and then up to three months longer to find the funds.

Some have received critical acclaim for the relatable life-or-death situations, heart-wrenching human stories, and astounding tales of courage in the face of the unknown.
Many of the memoirs are love stories to their professions; the intensity, passion, and dedication felt by the doctors and nurses is expressed beautifully through their accounts of day-to-day life.
From hospitals to GP surgeries, and further afield to the frontline of war-torn countries- these medical marvels have written these memoirs to share their amazing experiences, ensuring we don’t take them for granted.
As it is such a unique piece of fiction… We feel it is best to let the artists explain their book themselves:
“Sumguyen has always had a thick mane of hair, in the summer of 2016 he decided to grow a beard. Deep into month three he started to look like an armpit with eyeballs.
It was a sultry August night in Old Town Scottsdale as Bimisi and Sumguyen made their way from one bar to another. They took pause to to enjoy the rhythms of a homeless crooner who was soulfully picking his guitar.
When Sumguyen threw a five into his tip jar the artist looked up, thanked him with a nod and said, “That is a beautiful beard. My friend Brenda has a beard just like that, but hers doesn’t talk.”
A fair amount of beer sprayed from Bimisi’s nose…and just like that they had their subject matter for the final book of Season One.
