I wanted to look the books that were popular when I was born. I looked at the New York Times bestselling fiction list for February 8, 1987. I was born on the 13th. There were 16 books listed.
1 Windmills of the Gods by Sidney Sheldon
2 The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King
3 Red Storm Rising by Tom Clancy
4 It by Stephen King
5 Night of the Fox by Jack Higgins
6 Whirlwind by James Clavell
7 Bandits by Elmore Leonard
8 The Panic of ’89 by Paul Erdman
9 Flight of the Intruder by Stephen Coonts
10 The Prince of the Tides by Pat Conroy
11 Patience of a Saint by Andrew M. Greeley
12 The Counterlife by Philip Roth.
13 Death Quest by L. Ron Hubbard
14 A Taste for Death by P. D. James
15 Hollywood Husbands by Jackie Collins
16 Shan by Eric Van Lustbader
I wanted to see how many of these books I have read and out of all 16 of these I’ve only heard of two of them. The two by Stephen King. I’ve read both of those. I haven’t heard of any of the other 14, but I may see if I can find and read at least a few of them before next year on my birthday. Have you read any of these? What books were popular when you were born?
