every hotel and motel room in the united states has a bible in it. that's a lot of bibles. and as >>4360 said, no one who has a bible reads the bible, because that is the quickest way for someone to become atheist so it is actively discouraged by religious leaders.

>most read
How do you know that people read the books they purchase instead of just putting them on a shelf as display?
I think this would be more accurate if it said "Most purchased books" rather than "Most read books"

Ah, I may be able to answer this. Dedicated Muslims would have one decorated Quran, and hang it on a wall with a string so that it isn't touching the ground/table. There is no giving people Qurans like people do with Bibles. It's more of a decoration than actual reading stuff. A similar thing that happens is giving people calendars with Quran verses and other religious stuff.

The dominant anglo strains of christianity are protestant and thus far bigger on making people read the bible. Its a catholic take.
