Can You Identify The Authors Of The Top 30 Best-Selling Books Of All-Time?

Reading is fun-da-men-tal. Seriously, it is such a great boost to our brains to pick apart and tie together words and plots from a very early age. Unfortunately, it’s not always emphasized by people, with the going refrain of “I just don’t have the time”.

We’re probably all guilty of “not having the time” to read as much as we should. However, we here at MadTen would like to encourage you a bit more! Have you read all 30 of these literary best-sellers? Mind you, they’re not the top 30 books of all time in our opinions, simply the ones which historically sold the greatest amounts. That said, you’re going to impress us greatly if you can name all of the authors responsible for these literary juggernauts. Ready to give it a shot?
