As retro/vintage seems to be "in" these days, let's try for some older books. It is very straightforward. For a book to count, it must have an original publishing date of 1950 or earlier. (I was going to use 1958 since that is my birth year but decided mid century made more sense.)
Have fun with the "oldies"!
