How many languages is your favorite book in?

Books! Nearly everyone reads them all over the world.

And for some insight on what titles we’re all reading across the globe, the folks at 7 Brands put together a list of the 50 most translated books.

Was surprised Dr. Seuss wasn't on here, but then I thought that maybe that rhyming scheme doesn't hold up quite so well in French...Or even non-American English.

I’m not shocked about Little Prince, or Andersen’s Fairy Tales. However, I’m a bit surprised the Bible isn’t on here. When I saw the article I readily assumed that it would be one of the first entries. Not because some consider it ultra important, but because when I was in middle school I had a small leather bible (new testament only) and on the first few pages it stated that it was the most translated book in the world.

I thought that maybe it was excluded from the list as it’s not technically fiction, but the Diary of Anne Frank is also listed. So, not sure.

Anyways, it’s not important, as it’s all just fascinating information. That being said, the most interesting takeaway I got from this is that the bunny that I’ve seen so many times before is named Miffy.
