The best selling single volume book

Everybody has their favourite book. Even if this book is not a part of a series, there is always one book people can’t help but read over and over again. I thought it would be interesting to go on Wikipedia, and see what was the best selling single volume book. The top book that sold approximately 200 million copies, published in 1859, was A Tale of Two Cities,  by Charles Dickens. I haven’t read this novel yet, but I am planning to read it over the summer. This book is followed by The Lord of the Rings, which is technically one book, but it sometimes considered a series.

Let me know if you have read this book, and if it’s worth being one of the most popular books ever!
