We started at 1918, bringing you the bestselling books of the last one hundred years. We’ve had a bit of a pause, so sorry about that, I guess the pandemic is likely to appear on a blog like this in the future when we discuss the books of 2020. However, for now, we’re at 2010 so not long to go and here we have that year’s bestsellers.

2010 saw various major events around the world, in the UK the year kicked off with the worst snowstorms for thirty years, bringing much of the country to a standstill. As acts of nature go, this was nothing to the earthquake that killed 230,000 people in Haiti, a national tragedy. In technological news, the Apple iPad was born.

Among all that there were plenty of books published too. So here they are, the ten top selling books of 2010. We’re also featuring some well known books that didn’t make the cut!
