The Dirigible Plum wrote a slice about books publisher the year she was born, 1972, and I was inspired to search which books were published the year I was born, 1952.

You can read her SOL about the books published in 1972 here:

the year in books

I was amused to find Charlotte’s Web! Kids have been reading that book forever!

Then I found a few that I have actually read and enjoyed.

This one I read in a college Children’s Literature class and quickly fell in love with the story.

And this one has been a favorite of mine for a long time.

I had no clue these books were published so long ago!

  1. Oh wow, Charlotte’s Web! How wonderful! East of Eden is one of those novels I’ve always meant to read and never gotten around to. Maybe someday? I enjoyed reading your post and so glad you found an idea to write about from my post!

  2. I like this idea, also, and it’s really got me wondering now about the books from my birth year. I’ll have to do some research! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 ~JudyK
