Reading Recommendations: The 50 Best-Selling Books Of All Time
On this page, I’ve compiled 50 of the best-selling books in history, including novels, non-fiction books, and more. The list below shows books with the biggest volume of books sold, not my personal ratings. I intend on updating the list every January.
Note that religious books such as The Bible and The Quran are excluded in this list, for the obvious reason that tracking sales of such books are next to impossible. I’ve also taken manga, comic books, and graphic novels out of the equation because they are a different beast unto themselves.
The Essential Five
Each list of book recommendations I’ll post will include an “essential five”. This should help you get started with books that I personally think you should get started with.
Finally, we have Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, an empathetic story about a small American town and a scandal that will disturb their tranquil existence. It’s also a great examination on colorism and racism, something that’s still prevalent not only in America but all over the world.
The data used to build this list comes from this page. The “buy on Amazon” buttons include Affiliate Links, which means I get a commission whenever you buy books at zero extra cost. This list is updated every January.
