As I’ve explained in earlier pieces, I periodically post “most popular” lists of websites or books that I think educators might find useful. Of course, there are a number of ways to gauge “popularity.” I just view these lists as opportunities to check-out some new sites or books, and find it interesting to see which ones might be particularly “popular.”
Today, I thought I’d share a list of the most popular fiction authors of all-time.
Wikipedia has an extensive list. You might find it interesting to see everybody they have listed, including the number of books sold and their genres. I thought I’d just list the top eleven here:
6. Enid Blyton
8. Dr. Seuss
10. Leo Tolstoy
11. J. K. Rowling
