    Default Quran is the Most Popular Book of All Time

    Quran is the Most Popular Book of All Time

    It’s not exactly a ripping yarn, but the Koran is the most popular book of all time.

    by Ollie McAteer - 15 Jul 2015

    The religious text has been translated into 50 different languages, has nearly 400 editions and more than three billion copies have been printed.

    The King James Bible is a close runner up, with 2.5 billion copies to its name.

    In third place is Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung.

    Harry Potter (the entire series, which you could say is kind of cheating) makes it into fifth place, while wildcard The Very Hungry Caterpillar slides into the list among the weighty tomes with 30m copies sold.

    The list is ranked by lovereading.com and takes into account the number of editions, translations and copies sold.

    That account is actually higher. It's not taking into account all the buying done by organizations like your local mosque and giving it away free or saudi ministry sending free copies of it to the masjids to distribute.
    It was also a best seller as Christmas present few years back.
