When it comes to useless yet wildly entertaining facts, we're always game to learn which movies, TV shows, and major pop culture events were buzzing the year we were born. But what about books? Yup, we've got you covered. 

We used the New York Times Fiction Best Seller list
to round up the big-name novels everyone and their mom was reading, from 1942 to today. So congrats to those who were born in 1999  — J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban made waves in your year. And kudos to the babies of 2003 who get to call The DaVinci Code the book everyone was talking about the year they were introduced to this big wide world. So read on, book worms, and beware: There is plenty of Robert Ludlum and John Grisham ahead.
