J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, and Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series are the most popular works of fiction in recent years.  These novels have sold tens of millions of copies around the world.

However, their popularity and sales still pale in comparison to the bestselling novels of all time.

Indeed, the top 5 most popular ones have sold at least 100 million copies.  Only Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, at 80 million copies sold, comes close to those figures. Meanwhile, books by Stephen King, John Grisham, and Nora Roberts don't even come close.
