We started at 1918, bringing you the bestselling books of the last one hundred years. We’re moving along now, though it may be a while before we’ve covered the whole hundred years!
We’re covering each year at a time and we’re now approaching the end of the 1940s as we feature 1947.
In 1947 we saw the Roswell incident, the International Monetary Fund was founded, India and Pakistan gained independence from the UK, and a US postage stamp cost 3c.
Among all that, there were plenty of books published and read too, and today we’re featuring the bestselling novels of 1947, and some that didn’t make the list but have stood the test of time.
