Have You Read ...

... any of your birthday bestsellers?

BiblioQuest has a neat tool that gives you a list of New York Times bestsellers for the week of your birth. If you live in the U.S., be aware that you need to enter your birth date "backwards" -- for example, if your birthday is January 12, 1980, you'll need to enter it as 12/01/1980.

I must admit, I haven't read a single one of my birthday bestsellers, though I have seen one of the movies made: The Godfather. (The book was #2 when I was born.)

So, have you read any of the bestsellers listed for your birthday week?


  1. Oh my. I've never even heard of the books from my birthday best seller list. Interesting.

  2. Not a single one, although, I did recognize a few titles!


  3. The #1 bestselling book the week I was born is also one of my favorites - Breakfast of Champions, by Kurt Vonnegut. I've also read Johnathan Livingston Seagull, which was #8, and Sybil, which was #3 in non-fiction.
