We know how you love to look back on the previous new releases, and the This Day in Literature feature has proved very popular. Each month we look back on five decades of new releases, and now it’s time to look back at 50 years of May releases.
So if you were wondering what books were hot in the past, we hope this offers some inspiration, or maybe even jogs your memory of loved reads long forgotten. Here is fifty years of May releases in the book world.
Singin’ and Swingin’ and Gettin’ Merry Like Christmas – Maya Angelou
Maya Angelou is best known for her poetry, and for I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, but back in May 1976 she was releasing Singin’ and Swingin’ and Gettin’ Merry Like Christmas.
And that completes our 50 years of May releases. We hope those brought back some memories for you, or even inspired a new (old) book for the TBR!
