These surveys come out form time to time and always at the top is The Holy Bible. But some of the books on this top ten list certainly, in my mind, could say a lot about our world, culture and ourselves.
Here is a neat little poll. Take the information for what it's worth. But it's okay to read into what you may. I did.
Top Ten Most Read Books: (Based on sales over the last 50 years.)
1. The Holy Bible
2. Quotations from Chairman Mao (The number of Chinese in the world may have bumped this one up; plus, maybe a little "mandatory" reading.)
3. Harry Potter (the first)
4. The Lord of the Rings
5. The Alchemist
6. The Da Vinci Code
7. The Twilight Saga (That should tell us something!)
8. Gone with the Wind
9. Think and Grow Rich (That should also tell us something!!)
10. The Diary of Anne Frank
Here's the full story.
