Books are great, aren’t they? They smell so nice and don’t need any batteries to keep you engaged all the way through the story. You can find pant-soiling horrors, heart-breaking love stories, fascinating auto-biographies, countless worlds in fantasy and science fiction books, as well as books in any other genre and/or sub-genre you can imagine. Human imagination and creativity are limitless when it comes to storytelling.
Of course, some stories are much better than others, therefore selling more copies, so here are the absolute top 8 best-selling books in the world!
1. Dan Brown “The Da Vinci Code” – 80 million
Who doesn’t love a good mystery? It’s got riddles, Holy Grail, conspiracy theories and much more! Judging from the 80 million copies sold, “The Da Vinci Code” is definitely worth a read.
2. H. Rider Haggard “She: A History of Adventure” – 83 million
What would you do if you met a tribe deep in the African continent that had a white queen? Think “Lost World” meets “Indiana Jones”, but with much deeper analysis of the human psyche.
3. C.S. Lewis “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” – 85 million
This book is a must-read for anyone who likes fantasy and adventures. It’s even become a mandatory reading material in many high-schools! The best part is, this book is only the beginning, the first step (out of seven) to some of the most epic twists and shenanigans.
