Out of all the infographics we featured this year, one literary graphic was by far the most popular (and controversial) among our readers. Follow this link to see a larger image.
Designer Jared Fanning created a simple infographic comparing the Top 10 Most Read Books in the World, using a list compiled by freelance writer James Chapman–based on the number of copies each book sold over the last 50 years.
Check it out: “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.”
Simply encouraging to see that the Bible is still the most widely read book in the world! It's also fun to know that I've read approximately 7 out of the 10 books listed there ("approximate" because I couldn't bear to put myself through the torture that is Twilight).
