Happy 2013!!! Today is the first day of Lucky 13. Are you excited? I can’t hardly wait!
I thought this would be a good time to start out the new year with a super fun infographic from Business Insider, The Top Ten Most Read Books in the World:
- The Bible
- Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung (aka The Little Red Book)
- Harry Potter
- The Lord of the Rings
- The Alchemist
- The DaVinci Code
- The Twilight Saga
- Gone with the Wind
- Think and Grow Rich
- The Diary of Anne Frank
I’ve read at least part of every book on this list except for Mao’s little red book (and I think it’s fairly safe to assume I can continue on just fine without reading that little Communism handbook). 2 things struck me about this list:
1. These books are dramatically different. This is great as it means that there’s lots of room at the top! As a reading public, we aren’t stuck inside any one genre — we read lots of different things.
2. Some of these books are relatively recent, which means that this list is ever-changing. In a few years, your book could be on the list!
Have you read any of these “most read” books? Which were your favorites?
P.S. Speaking of the new year, there’s a great new year’s resolutions post over at bottledworder.
