We started at 1918, bringing you the bestselling books of the last one hundred years. We’re moving along now and today we’re just past the halfway point of this series as we rest at 1968.
In 1969, Richard Nixon was sworn in as the 37th President of the United States, as Led Zeppelin released their first album. France became joint winners of the Eurovision song content, in the same month that the country conducted test flights for Concorde, and Charles de Gaulle steps down as President of France.
Among all that, there were plenty of books published and read too, and today we’re featuring the bestselling novels of 1969, and some that didn’t make the list but have stood the test of time.
