Totally Random Lists: What Year Is It?

EDITOR’S NOTE: This year at HPB, we’re celebrating the random. Actually, we’ve been doing that every year since our founding in 1972. And we mean random in a totally good way, as in the random treasures you come across when you’re browsing our stores or website—and the wonderfully random stuff we buy from the public every day. In this series of posts, you’ll find books, movies and music collected in some very random ways. So let’s get started with our first list for January 2017!
Authors have been using years in their book titles, for, well, years and years. To kick off the year called 2017, here’s a list of some notable books, movies & music named after a particular 12-month period.Jan-Baby.png

Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell

2001: A Space Odyssey

1989, Taylor Swift

Of course, there are hundreds, even thousands of other years worth celebrating! Check out a longer version of this list at
