Aquesta pàgina proporciona les llistes dels llibres i sèries de llibres individuals més venuts fins al moment i en qualsevol idioma. El concepte de"més venut" (que generalment s'expressa amb els termes supervendes o best-seller) es refereix al nombre de còpies (o una estimació) venudes de cada llibre, i no a les que van ser impresses o distribuïdes gratuïtament. No s'inclouen en aquesta llistes ni els còmics ni els llibres de text. Els llibres es llisten segons les vendes màximes estimades i reportades per fonts independents i fidedignes.

Hi ha diversos casos, significativament el de El Quixot -de Miguel de Cervantes (1605-1615), en espanyol- per als que se sol reclamar un gran nombre d'exemplars venuts al llarg de la història, essent la xifra més alta de la llista, però per als que cap font fiable dóna una xifra concreta.[1]

De la mateixa manera, moltes sèries notables de llibres que es van vendre àmpliament estan poc documentades (El màgic d'Oz) o consisteixen en diverses sub-sèries (Tom Swift).

Tampoc apareixen obres polítiques, com les de Mao Zedong, ni religioses, com la Bíblia, l'Alcorà, el Llibre del Mormó o Què ensenya realment la Bíblia?, que s'han distribuït gratuïtament, indicades en l'annex corresponent a les obres més distribuïdes.

Després de més de 500 milions d’exemplars venuts a tot el món,[2][3][4] Harry Potter de JK Rowling és la sèrie de llibres més venuda de la història. La primera novel·la de la sèrie, Harry Potter i la pedra filosofal, ha venut més de 120 milions d’exemplars,[5] convertint-la en un dels llibres més venuts de tots els temps. A partir del juny del 2017, la sèrie s'ha anat traduint a 80 idiomes,[6] situant Harry Potter entre les obres literàries més traduïdes de la història. Els últims quatre llibres de la sèrie van establir rècords consecutivament com els llibres més venuts de tots els temps, amb l'entrega final, Harry Potter i els Deathly Hallows, que va vendre aproximadament quinze milions d’exemplars arreu del món en les vint-i-quatre hores posteriors al llançament.[7][8] Amb dotze milions de llibres impresos a la primera edició dels EUA, també manté el rècord de la impressió inicial més alta de qualsevol llibre en la història.[9][10]
