Weekly Geeks Wrap Up 2010 - 29: Reading From the Decades

Wendy from Caribousmom celebrated her 50th birthday last week and that got her wondering about books published in our birth decades. She asked Weekly Geeks to discuss a book that came out the decade we were born, one that we either loved or hated.

This week our Weekly Geek participants spanned several different decades, which makes the responses all the more interesting. This is what some of you had to say:

Meaghan from Book Geek talks about a book published the year she was born that had a significant impact on her life: The Watsons Go to Birmingham- 1963, published in 1995.

Jordyn of Ten Cent Notes covers the 1980's (up through 2000) with mention of the popular Baby-Sitters Club series.

Annabel from Gaskella, born in 1960, points out several books that were published the decade of her birth, including The Weirdstone of Brisingamen, To Kill a Mockingbird and The Ballad of Peckham Rye.

Kerrie's (of Mysteries of Paradise) love for reading got much encouragement from the books of Enid Blyton, published in the 1940's. Also among her favorites include Daphne du Maurier and Agatha Christie.

Thanks to everyone who participated in Weekly Geeks this week, and remember to check back tomorrow for our new topic!
