    Woot! Go Stephenie! I wish she got first on everything though. Maybe that other one got first because it’s been out longer? Anyways I don’t like Harry Potter so I’m going to tell everyone to get The Twilight Saga so we can get first next time 😀 I hope 🙂

  4. Team Alice Jr says:

    Of course Harry Potter got first because 7 and 4 books who’s gonna rule out? And they have been out longer.. HP AND TWILIGHT RULE!

    I’m glad to see that Harry Potter and The Twilight Saga books made it on the list. They were all great books. I like to keep an open mind about other books. I even read all the Lord of the Rings books. My next book to read is Lovely Bones and also conquer all the Jane Austen novels. I also think JK Rowlings deserved the #1 spot because she was a struggling writer to come up with such a great fantasy world. I’m also glad to see Stephenie Meyer on the list. I’m very excited that there will be Harry Potter World opening in 2010 in Universal Studios Hollywood. I’m surprised to see William Shakespeare on the list as well, but still never say anyone is better than him, this list is only for the top ten Best Selling of the decade not Best Author. I’m sure he would be in a higher spot than JK Rowling and Stephenie if this list was the Top list of all time for Best Selling or even for just Best Author. He did somewhat inspire Stephenie to include Romeo and Juliet in her story. William Shakespeare inspired a lot of movies (She’s the Man or 10 Things I Hate About You) , plays (Westside Story), books, etc.

  21. Team Alice says:

    I finished my drawing! I just need to scan it in!

  22. ALEXIS BLACK says:

    I don’t really like those things but the twilight saga one is way to cool not to like. 🙂

  23. Ana says:

    I love Twilight books but I can’t deny: It’s hard to compete against Harry Potter. That are the books of the decade, absolutely

  24. shaharEB says:

    thank you Team Alice and Anne^^. for answer me!!

    its still hard for me to decide what i liked most?

  25. Linda says:

    go twi and SM!!!

  26. Hanna says:

    oh! we have them all!

  27. jt says:

    OMG Go Stephenie!!!!!! That’s so awesome!!! So “Just Kidding” Rowling has three books in the top 10 of the decade, and Stephenie has F O U R!!!!! Kudos to SMeyer!!!

    And guess what! The top 3 selling authors of the decade are ALL WOMEN!!!! Suck on that Steven King! I don’t see you in either category! Maybe you should think twice before you talk smack about the Amazing Stephenie Meyer!
