THE TOP 10 BEST-SELLING NOVELS OF ALL TIME

Which of these have you read? I have written guides to reading and teaching two of these best-selling novels in Spanish. One year we listened to Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal in AP Spanish. Every other year for 10 years I taught El alquimista in my Spanish 4 and AP classes. Both were well worth the time.
