Often give us soldiers the lie: but we pay...

I started reading my 16th book last night, Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis.  The book was published in 1953, making in the fourth book I'll have read from the 50's.  I haven't yet read any books from the 70's or 90's, so when I was at the library, I had tried to find a book from either of those decades; sort of a way of evening out the list I guess.  However, none of the nine books on The List from those two decades were available at my local branch.  In fact one book, Dog Soldiers, isn't even available in the entire Calgary Library system.  Might I have to actually buy one of the books from The List?
