Christians tend to be proud to claim that the Bible is the "best-selling book of all time", presumably because the insinuation is that so many copies have been sold.
One overwhelming and compelling argument against such a hollow claim is that a very high percentage of Bibles are given out, for example by missionaries and many recipients would not even read it or rather use it as a door-stop.
And, think of how many hundred thousand copies of the Bible sit in hotel room drawers; their only use being to stop the uneven table leg from causing your Dom Perignon to topple. Most uneven tables only require the said book of wisdom to be opened at say, Revelations 4:7. In such case, the hotel guest would want to refrain from reading the passage for fear of one's mouth spraying the champagne at the wall due to a spontaneous outburst of laughter.
Then, of course, think of even more hundreds of thousands of Bibles stored in classroom cupboards, a bit worse for wear owing to many years of Bible fights by students.
Therefore, the Bible must be one of the least read, least popular books in the world. The number of people who want and own a bible is far fewer than the number of Bibles. There is a ridiculous surplus of these books in the world.
How many other books ever published have such a low reader to ownership ratio?
