List of Best-Selling Books

List of best-selling book series of all time

The next list features the best-selling book series of all time. It includes all literary works with 100 million sales or more. Individual books that have surpassed that margin, Comic Books, Mangas in the Tankōbon format, and regularly updated reference books are also included. Books with the name highlighted in red are those with a highly debatable sales value, either because they are distributed by several publishers without official data, or because of their antiquity. They are included in this list for reference and comparison.
