Top 10 Best Selling Books of All Time

Let’s see which are the top ten best selling single volume books to date in all languages. The books are listed by the highest number of sales estimated in reliable, independent sources. Religious books, especially the Bible and the Qur’an, are probably the most-printed books, but it is nearly impossible to find reliable sales figures for them. Print figures are missing or unreliable since these books are produced by many different and unrelated publishers. Comic books and text books are not added in the list. Here, “best-selling” refers to the estimated number of copies sold of each book. The number of sales are approximate.

    1. A Tale of Two Cities  -  By Charles Dickens  -  200 million
    2. The Lord of the Rings  -  By J. R. R. Tolkien  -  150 million
    3. The Hobbit  -  By J. R. R. Tolkien  -  100 million
    4. 红楼梦 ( Dreams of the Red Chamber)  -  By Cao Xueqin  -  100 million
    5. And Then There Were None  -  By Agatha Christie  -  100 million
    6. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe  -  By C. S. Lewis  -  85 million
    7. She  -  By H. Rider Haggard  -  83 million
    8. Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince)  -  By Antoine de Saint-Exupéry  -  80 million
    9. The Da Vinci Code  -  By Dan Brown  -  80 million
    10. Think and Grow Rich  -  By Napoleon Hill  -  70 million

    I dunno y I have to disagree with u guys allways. Bible is the best selling book of all time #1. And war and peace, oliver twist, etc are left unsaid.

    • I wish if you had time to read the full post which also says “Religious books, especially the Bible and the Qur’an, are probably the most-printed books, but it is nearly impossible to find reliable sales figures for them. Print figures are missing or unreliable since these books are produced by many different and unrelated publishers.”

      War and Peace also known as Война и мир (by Leo Tolstoy) sold no more than 36 million copies; and is nowhere near the real bestsellers.
      Thanks for dropping by.
