The 10 Most Read Books in the World
The list was compiled by freelance writer James Chapman, based on the number of copies each book sold over the last 50 years. “I have compiled this list of the 10 Most Read Books In The World after completing a long project of research to establish exactly which are the most read books in the world … You will find in this list a varied array of subject matter, covering a considerable number of years of some truly talented author’s work. Some of the authors are no longer with us, but the majority are still producing their masterpieces for our ongoing delight.” -James Chapman
