The Most Popular Books of All Time [Infographic]

by Staff Writers | The Web Writer Spotlight: Nov 19, 2013

The good folks at Lovereading.co.uk created an infographic called, “The Most Popular Books of All Time,” which explores the most read books throughout history. The graphic looks at the most popular books ever through sales data and the number of times it has been translated. It includes number of editions, number of translations and units sold.

The books on the list are not a surprise, but it’s interesting to see how they stack up against each other in terms of sales figures. Among the most popular books ever are: Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, The Odyssey by Homer, Dream of the Red Chamber by Cao Xueqin, and A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

Check out the entire graphic for yourself and tell us if your favorite book is on the list, or if you have read any of the books on the infographic:
