Susanna - Censored by GoodReads This list is not letting me add books I KNOW were published in the 1930s.


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) ... and on the other hand, it, too, contains a number of books not published during the relevant decade.

Removed: Camus, "Caligula" (though begun in the 1938s, only finished and first published in 1944).


message 3: by Chris (new)

Chris Johnson No Zora Neale Hurston Their Eyes Were Watching God? This list is about is sturdy and credible as a pillar of dust.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could add it.


message 5: by Chris (new)

Chris Johnson I'm not mad at the Hobbit being number one. Tolkien's the ish.


message 6: by M/Ðɑηηɑ (new)

M/Ðɑηηɑ I seriously think that THE 30S was THE best decade of literature! I mean, GONE WITH THE WIND! GRAPES OF WRATH!!!

We totally need another decade like this ;)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Correct me if I'm wrong - but wasn't A Death in the Family published in the 1950s?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You add books to the list at the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed, for being first published in 1957:

A Death in the Family
