The Way Back Machine – Best Sellers 2006

A quick trip in the Way Back Machine this month – we’re heading to 2006 – so put on your bling, boo, and let’s bounce… Recognize that slang from back in the day? Still with us, I’m afraid. 🙂


Thinking back a mere nine years, you might remember 2006 for:

  • the New Horizons space probe which launched in January, on target for Pluto in 2015 (which happened this July!)
  • the “Twitter”, a new social media network, which launched in July (apparently not just a fad!)
  • the U.S. population hitting 300 million in October (we hit 326 million this year)


For an extra nostalgic kick, pick up one of these books from the New York Times Best Sellers list from the week of November 19, 2006.
