Yes technically, the Bible is the top-selling.  However, I believe we were looking at original works per se.  I believe #2 makes sense when you think of it that way.


Also, Beatles is incorrect.

Yeah, this one is going to be hard but I can't think of any vague hints other than this was not the only known work of this author.  Almost all of his works have been made into films, some several times.

My first guess was going to be Mockingbird as well but then I saw Robert tried that and started to think back on it. I was supposed to read this but never did. I failed but passed the class lol
