Top 10 best selling authors of all time. There is some estimating that has to happen for these, but generally the Top 10 are pretty well identified. Have you read them all?

10. Dr. Seuss: between 100 and 500 million sales
9. Gilbert Patten: between 125 and 500 million sales
8. Sidney Sheldon: between 370 to 600 million book sales
7. Enid Blyton: between 300 to 600 million book sales
6. Georges Simenon: between 500 to 700 million book sales
5. Harold Robbins: around 750 million book sales
4. Danielle Steel: between 500 and 800 million book sales
3. Barbara Cartland: between 1/2 and 1 billion book sales
2. Agatha Christie: between 2 to 4 billion books sales
1. William Shakespeare: between 2 to 4 billion books sales

Can I tell you, there's some names on this list I haven't even heard of! Nice to note: 4 of the Top 10 are women. And J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame was 11th.

I've only read authors #1, #2, and #10. I guess I don't gravitate to the most popular?
