Birthday Books

Ever wonder what people were reading when you were born?

Crazy idea huh, the best-seller that was capturing the rest of the world's attention while you were becoming the apple of your parents' eye.

Biblioz.com has a new searchable feature that finds the top 15 fiction and non-fiction sellers for the week you were born.

I had no idea what my birthday fiction list would reveal, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a book I'd a) heard of and b) actually read and enjoyed.

The top-selling fiction book for the week of June 2, 1980? Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity.

What book topped the charts when you were born?
