Best Sold Books of All Time

I wish I was the author of one of these books, just think about all the money you could make. Money isn’t everything, but it definatly is a big part of life! Well, back to the subject. Take a look at these huge best sellers!

1.) The Bible

Noone knows exactly how many copies of this book have been sold. But it was estimated in 1992 that over 6,000,000,000 copies in more than 2,000 languages and dialects had been printed. It is definatly the leading best seller though, by far! I think it’s a pretty good book too. Reminds me of Lord of the Rings . . . they are both pretty big books, both have a pretty realistic story and are both very interesting to read.

2.) Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung ( Little Red Book )

Between 1966 and 1971 it was compuslory for every adult in China to own a copy of this book. Now I don’t know how many that is, but China is the country with the most population in the world after all, so it does sound like a huge number of books!

3.) American Spelling Book by Noah Webster

A Spelling book by Noah Webster, published in 1783. It remained a bestseller all throughout the 19th century and is still very popular! No exact numbers are known, but its a lot.

4.) The Guinness Book of Records

If you havn’t heard of this book you are strange and you deserve to be in it. It was first published in 1955 and since then a new copy has been published every year! Some people collect them and I myself have one from 1989, one from 1999 and one from 2003! Since it is still very popular and a bestseller it isn’t strange its sold so much. This is probably the most interesting book in the world too.

5.) The McGuffey Readers by William Holmes McGuffey

I actually havn’t read this one! It’s an educational textbook first published in 1853. Over 122,000,000 copies have been printed!

All of these have sold over 10,000,000 copies each around the world. I read all of them myself and they are all great, check them out! 😀
