How Sad are these Book Stats?

How sad is this?  The Twilight Saga has been read millions of times more than Gone With the Wind (one of my fave books) and the Diary of Anne Frank.  And this is really only keeping track of how many copies have been sold, not the amount of times its been borrowed from the library or friends, or digitally(?).

Top 10 Most Read Books in the World

Daily Prompt: What was your favorite book as a child? Did it influence the person you are now?

I absolutely loved the Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit series!  I have read those stories thousands of times!

The stories are simple for any level to understand with a touch of whimsey.

Did you know there is also an interactive Peter Rabbit book you can get on your Kindle?

*Peter Rabbit links to my affiliate link, where I would get a percentage of sales.
