Amazon just revealed the most popular Kindle books of all time
Nov. 19, 2017, marks a whopping 10 years since the debut of the Amazon Kindle. And whether you're a die-hard e-reader or you prefer to stick with physical books, it's hard to deny that the Kindle has indelibly shaped the book world, allowing readers to carry a personal library around with them everywhere.
In honor of the Kindle's 10-year anniversary, Amazon released new data from Amazon Charts, sharing some of the most popular Kindle books of all time, based on Kindle sales in both fiction and nonfiction.
Notably, the entire list of the top 10 most popular fiction books on Kindle star female protagonists, and nine of the 10 books were written by female authors. The only male writer on the fiction list is John Green for his novel The Fault In Our Stars. Also, for fiction, all of the most popular novels also have had movie adaptations (or have movie adaptations upcoming), and six of the 10 are entries in book trilogies. In other words, readers are finding characters they love and sticking with them.
The results of the most popular nonfiction books are more varied. Readers devoured topics ranging from deep dives back into World War II to Cheryl Strayed's hike through the Pacific Crest Trail to self help on how to speak the language of love.
