maybe if you used "purchased" instead of "buyed" in your google search it would be more fruitful.

That list makes me very sad. Seriously, the book on the Atkin's diet is the 2nd best selling book ever?

That list isn't correct though... the lack of non english material or the bible should have made you suspicious ;).


Wikipedia has a whole page on best selling books:

Here you go.

Too bad too many kids confuse it with Harry Potter.

This is indeed correct. As the Bible or the Qur'an aren't in there , I don't believe the list to be wholly accurate.

Maybe the most sold over the last five or even ten years, then that list would work.

A book really isn't bought if it's forced onto you. Therefore, the Bible and Qu'ran shouldn't be up there. Not trying to spark a debate or anything, just stating facts.

I can see what you're trying to say, but you have to realise that the book still has to be published and sold in the first place for it to be "forced" on people. Unless, of course, there is some Divine Printing Press knocking around somewhere.

I see where you're coming from.

A place where they don't really state facts at all.

I feel the same way about Tuesdays with Morrie that Smash feels about the Bible.

At some point I'm just tired of people's opinions on the bible in general. I don't care if it has to do with your militant atheism, or if you are lamenting the poor translation of the King James Version of the bible or that you think Aramaïc is an archaic and ambiguous language. The first one's easy enough, who are you to think that your ignorant opinion can judge a 2000 year old faith with centuries of academic history? (I'm not religious, I just don't like being associated with certain people), and the latter are even easier, do you really think watching a documentary on bible mysteries really means you are qualified to repeat by rote what you heard? Ever play that game where you whisper things from ear to ear?

Oh and I went on a rant but don't mind me, I'm just waiting for my parents to arrive.

so um, I know this is a silly question, but then why read a thread like this? I mean you know this debate is gonna come up.. there is a reason many don't go into the "can you see britney's pussy in the new upskirt photos" thread

Because it sounded interesting, why did you think? I had no idea people would care about the statistical placing of books purchased on Amazon.com or the NY times bestseller, in fact I would have thought people would have the general decency to know that the printed word existed before the internet.
