I wanted to write something about the best-selling writers of all time. There are a lot of great writers out there, and many of them get noticed. These writers, like J.K. Rowling, Agatha Kristie and William Shakespeare, have sold hundred of millions of copies of their books. William Shakespeare and Agatha Kristie, in particular, have been rumoured to sell at least a billion book copies each. The question is, what makes these writers so successful?
They have encapsulated the minds of their readers. They created glorious works, like the Narnia, Harry Potter and Robert Langdon series. These works have captured the imagination of their readers. Whether incredibly suspenseful, an example of riveting fantasy or a great adventure, a lot of these classics and recent works excel in their genres. It is difficult to underestimate the impact of these works.
How much have these books and writers sold? The best selling book of all time, that is not a religious text, is Dan Quixote. It was written by Miguel de Cervantes and sold 500 million copies. Other titles in the list of best-selling books include a Tale of Two Cities, the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The list of best-selling writers of all time includes the writers of these books; here are links to both lists, best-selling books and writers of all time:
