    A lot of these make sense, even agatha christie is read in a lot of asian countries.
    I assume a tale of two cities is mostly read in English speaking countries however, ive never heard someone talk about that one irl.

    Chairman Mao's quotations should be on the very top of the totally factual list of best selling books, selling over 9 million copies. Someone should add it to the list with my citations.

      The list excludes "religious, ideological, philosophical or political" books, probably to avoid controversy.

        Then why does the list include Don Quixote (anti-papist), A Tale of Two Cities (British propaganda), The Alchemist (NRM), Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (anti-religious and anti-transgender), And Then There Were None (racist propaganda), Dream of the Red Chamber (reactionary propaganda), and The Hobbit? (political allegory)

      Wait. You linked to an article saying that The Bible is the most sold book. I don't know why you said Mao's Quotations should be at the very top.

        "Other interesting comparisons include Mao’s book of quotations which has sold over 900 million copies in a comparatively short time, since 1966, and the Qur’an which became popular in recent years but there are big differences in the way these two books compare to the Bible."

            That's not relevant. If the book is selling 900 million copies in a comparitively short time it has already outsold all of the books listed on Wikipedia's (a total mess of an encyclopedia, not authoritative, & needs to be permanently erased) list of best-selling books.

            Yes, that's my opinion. I don't expect Wikipedia to put the bible at the top of anything. I can see that we have many wikipedia editors itt. You will snipe at anything, any chance to bring the bible down, and bring truth and beauty down with it!

            >2. Don Quixote is arguably not a fiction either.
            It's very much fiction, schizo.

            There's nothing in Don Quixote to suggest it's fiction, and it's one of those odd books where self-inserting into the text can start to bend the rules of fiction and non-fiction, biography and autobiography.

            It's a book deliberately written about someone who is known to never have existed doing things that are known to never have occurred. Where is the confusion here, exactly?

            Where does it say that exactly?

            This is the most fricking frustrating thing in the world because I know the book is fiction but I don't know how to prove it. Frick you and your mind games, anon

            Why did Don Quixote slip out of reality in this one? Perhaps because it's not actually a book at all??

            By that logic most fiction books are actually non-fiction because "it doesn't say in the text it's fiction". But Cervantes clearly says in the prologue that it's a story from his wit, created in jail:
            >So, what could a sterile and ill-cultivated talent such as mine engender, if not the story of a dry, shriveled-up, unpredictable child, who was filled with thoughts never-before imagined by anyone else—such a book as one might dream up while in jail, where all discomfort is to be found, and where all lugubrious sounds dwell?

            Read the rest of the prologue. Don Quixote was a real knight known to the inhabitants of La Mancha; it says so in the last paragraph of the prologue. Of course the author will embellish some parts, but the book is mainly true.

            No, Cervantes refers to him as his child (i.e. his creation). He's being affectionate, not literal, and his talking about the story of the book, not about reality.

            Read the rest of the prologue and stop using it as machine gun pellets against me as soon as you find a new one to use. I pray to God to give you patience. Cervantes refers to himself as only the stepfather of the book. He's being literal, not affectionate; We are talking about literature, not embellishment, which Dr. Quixote explicitly rejects in the prologue.

            No need. Cervantes killed DQ so no one would write more fake adventures about him. It is a fictional creation.
            >Cervantes refers to himself as only the stepfather of the book. He's being literal, not affectionate
            He's being affectionate. He says he's the stepfather of Don Quixote because as much as you want a book to be 100% what's in your head, there will always be flaws.
            >We are talking about literature, not embellishment, which Dr. Quixote explicitly rejects in the prologue.
            Non-fiction isn't literature. If DQ wasn't fiction, which it is, it wouldn't be literature.

            There's no way that the Quran is only 800 million. Not even mentioning its millennium-plus history, there are more than a billion Muslims in the modern day, and almost all of them have at least 2 to 3 copies of the Quran. It should be over 2 billion.

          1. That's not relevant. The first non-fiction book listed is Benjamin Spock's The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care (leftist propaganda)
          2. Don Quixote is arguably not a fiction either.
