Here's the place for book recommendations for Category 11: a book published the year you were born. This one will vary greatly, of course. But it will be cool to see options for different years.

A couple of great resources to see your options:

Here's a database that will show you the New York Times bestsellers (in fiction and nonfiction) for the week of your birth. Be sure to put the day first and month second, Euro-Australian-style. ;)

http://www.biblioz.com/best_sellers.php

And GoodReads has lists of popular books by publication year. Here's the one for my birth year, 1968. (Yes, I turn 50 this year! Woooot!). For your year, just change the date in the URL:

I love the Goodreads lists for years! But the other one is a new one to me. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to go check it out and see if I can find any new options that Goodreads didn't give me. I admit to being a little partial to "Harriet the Spy" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" for my year (I've got you beat by a few years).
