I've always heard that the bible is the most best selling book in the world, which I can understand for reasons other than simply being of scriptural importance to believers or those curious about Christian beliefs, I believe it has literary merit and there are those who are athiests even who remain devoted fans.
The possibility that the thoughts of chairman Mao would be second doesnt surprise me or that the Quran could be next, those are major works within the belief systems which dominate in populous parts of the world.
Then its switches lanes into Harry Potter and The Alchemist? Really? I read The Alchemist and thought it was shite, I understand the devoted following for the Potter books even if I dont like them myself. However, it seems to be an amazing mix of the serious and trivial or merely diversionary and entertaining.
Is life just like that?
