Books Published Before I was born

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is books that were written before you were born. I was born in 1992 and out of the 400 or so book that I have read over the last 4 years only 2 were published before I was born. So for today’s list I figured I add the other 3 books that are currently on my TBR that were written before 1992 as well to round the number up to five!

  1. I’m feeling rather old looking at all these posts from people born in the 1990s! I pre-date some of your choices! I do love Tolkien – The Hobbit was my gateway into the joys of fantasy, but somehow I have never read Ursula Le Guin… I did put a little twist on the topic this week: rather than disappearing into the classics (where there are so many that I love but rarely blog about) I went for books published in the year I was born!

  2. Only 2 pre-90s books out of your last 400?? HOW DO YOU DO THAT EVEN. (although I guess it’s easier to read old ones when you ignore new releases/shop used book sales/keep skimming too darn many books about teen books published in the 20th century and getting distracted by those cool-lookin’ summaries instead)
