It’s been a while since I’ve done a book post. Since this week brought us National Book Lover’s Day, I thought I’d add a post with some books the home front housewife might have been reading in 1940. All are still available today.
For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ernest Hemingway
You Can’t Go Home Again, Thomas Wolfe
Native Son, Richard Wright
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Carson McCullers
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe, Agatha Christie
Here are some children’s books from 1940 that the home front housewife might have read to her kids at bedtime.
Caps for Sale, Esphyr Slobodkina
The Long Winter, Laura Ingall’s Wilder
Horton Hatches the Egg, Dr. Seuss
Betsy-Tacy, Maud Hart Lovelace
This is a new-to-us series that we have just started to read at bedtime.
Pat the Bunny, Dorothy Kunhardt
