* Health warning: there’s no easy way to measure the top bestselling books of all time, especially since copies of religious books like the Bible are often given away free, and it’s impossible to tell how many have been printed. So we’ve compiled our list from the generally agreed figures.
The alternative top ten
Every year, Travelodge releases the list of the most popular books left behind in its hotels. Simon Cowell’s biography was the book most likely to be left behind last year, closely followed by Ant and Dec’s biography Ooh, What a Lovely Pair.
In third place was Vince Cable’s book on the economic crisis.
Unsurprisingly – given the amount of copies they sell – Dan Brown, Steig Larsson and Stephanie Meyer also made the list.
