BOOKS & AUTHORS

The bestsellers of today are rarely considered to be the greatest novels of all-time, but no one can tell if a book published in our lifetime will be read a hundred years later. Here is a list of bestselling novels from the 1920s. Many of these books did not receive critical acclaim, but were widely read and loved by the public.
