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 1970.
In 1970, Concorde’s first supersonic flight took place, and the Jumbo Jet goes into service as air travel really ‘takes off’. In the US and the UK the voting age was lowered to 18, and the Beatles disbanded, breaking many a young heart.
Among all that, there were plenty of books published and read too, and today we’re featuring the bestselling novels of 1970, and some that didn’t make the list but have stood the test of time.
