Nothing new to share, so we'll go back to That's a Fact Jack: A Collection of Utterly Useless Information [Updated] by Harry Bright and Jakob Anser! This book amuses me greatly!!

"According to Guinnes World Records, the Bible is the bestselling book of all time, with roughly 2.5 billion copies distributed between 1815 and 1975 in over 2,200 languages and dialects. More recent estimates put the total number sold between 5 and 6 billion."

Wow! I think I remember hearing that the Bible is the bestselling book of all time though! LOL! This book has a copyright year of 2006 and 2013, hence the new numbers may be even higher!



"The Bible is the most shoplifted book in the world"

This just makes no sense to me! LOL! I mean seriously?! I guess these people missed the "Thou shall not steal" bit!

  3. Well maybe they hadn't read it yet LOL but after stealing it and reading it, they should definitely know better. Or maybe some thieves just thought it ironic? I enjoyed this!
