I know I promised no more "Best of" lists, but Good Magazine (which is really good by the way) has a sidebar on the bestselling books of all time. I couldn't resist.

  1. The Bible - 6,000,000,000 copies
  2. Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-Tung - 900,000,000 copies
  3. American Spelling Book - 100,000,000 copies
  4. Guinness World Records - 90,000,000 copies
  5. The World Almanac - 73,500,000 copies
