Building a lifestyle magazine for everyone in Hong Kong.

Posted by Lucas Daniel on 10 April 2018

Last September, we can see that Huffington Post have an article by Alexander Carr posting the 15 best-selling books ever. These records are challenged by so many people, so I did a little modification, and below is my favourite list.

It would be ideal if you NOTE: This rundown isn't as much a proportion of what number of duplicates have sold, yet a proportion of book's notoriety. It's additionally not a proposal of scholarly legitimacy. Most researchers concur that the best works of world writing were composed by Homer, Shakespeare, Cervantes and Goethe. None of their works influenced the main 25 to list.

Truly, it is greatly hard to set up exact offers of contemporary books, and essentially difficult to set up correct offers of books distributed long prior. This best 25 list is close to a best figure as to genuine overall deals. Appreciate.
