I’m surprised War and Peace didn’t make the list.

Lord Inter says:

Rowling will pay 10% capital gains tax in the UK unless she moves her money to Jersey, isle of man etc for free then she’ll pay no tax at all. The USA is 15% and 20% in the EU, to call the UK tax expensive is wrong

its kindi says:

the da vinci code was one of the best books or movies that i have ever watched and read

tony bennett says:

Profoundly depressed by some of these titles. Ah, well. No reason why the Bible shouldn’t be included as it is obviously a work of fiction.

Agatha Christia sold 2 billion, not 200 billion… Quite a difference there.

The Alchemist is one of the worst books I’ve ever read, the English version anyway. I know I’m being negative , but you have been warned.

Chandler Hernandez says:

I love this book site “fetching lobon only” (Google it), it`s not hard to use and there a variety of books/documents to read. I am very happy for finding this website and you should try it as well. If you love to read than this is the website for you. I`ve discovered everything I`ve looked for.

I find it hard to believe that none of Charles Dickens other novels sold nearly as many as Tale of Two Cities.

iguana says:

I’m only here because I’m a book worm

Steven Long says:

In terms of C S Lewis Magdalen College is pronounce maudlin, don’t know why but it is. Also The Lion, Witch & Wardrobe is not the introduction to the Narnia series, the first one was The Magician’s Nephew. TLTWATW was book 2 in the series. Get it right!!!

Casey Hall says:

If you wish to read just about any books, you can accomplish it here in “fetching lobon only” (Google it). Right after looking for free books online, I ultimately found them all in one location, allowing me to save money from purchasing a new book. A great way to learn, grow, and imagine at work, in the car, and at home! I also love the books that I could listen to.

Roman Vasquez says:

Hey, what about “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christie. It would be in the secord or third spot

A wonderful method to learn, grow, and imagine at work, in the vehicle, and at home! Also I like the books that I could listen to.

I do believe that the book and movie “Clue” was based off of “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christi.

Use this website “fetching lobon only” (Google it) if you`re a reader. All kinds of subjects are located here. From medicine to history to contemporary literature , you can read every little thing. I just love it!! It has really exceeded my expectations. It also has all the materials my son should start reading. It will help a lot.

speedy says:

the tale of 2 cities ? really ?
I found that book kind of boring and dumb. Great expectations is much , much better.

CMFTC says:

Too bad so many dumb asses don’t realize “religious” books are all fiction.

gryphonshire says:

I’ve read (and/or owned) all but #8 & #3 – an omission I will soon correct! 😉

Bruno56 says:

The more you try to suppress & censor a book, the more you make people to read it. That’s why I laugh at people saying the Bible & Koran should be censored.

Jesse Torres says:

keep Narnia #frozen

I have read only three best sellers: The Lion, Little Prince & some chapters of Don Quijote.
