Although, pre-printing press -- define popular when likely most editions were in holy places, schools and the few libraries rather than homes of individuals.
"50 shades of Grey" (*snarf!!!*). From Homer to E.L . James... Sign of the times...

Yes - this was my first thought. A study in the decline of humanity (from a literary standpoint; not a moral one - just to be clear, lol.)

How did they arrive at the numbers?
Hmm. Whose numbers were they basing this on?

@BT and SusannaG - I have no idea, I tried to find their source information but they didn't include it. I'm guessing they just used a combination of the most enduring and most consistently purchased books, until the point where they had sales figures (which would explain that appalling last entry). I just enjoyed the fun facts and the way The Prince followed on the heels of the Bible and the Koran. :D (I'm easily amused.)

LoL. Yeah, that is quite funny.
I never thought I'd see a list with War and Peace, Second Sex and the Bible together and think it fit, to get to the end and see 50 shades there. WTF
