Imagine a world free of books or any other type of manuscripts. And think of all those ignorant sapiens that are no less than our ancestor-the ape. We live in a world where although technology has surpassed the traditional form of learning but it will never be able to replace the authenticity of a book. After all history stands evidence to some of the most amazing and eye-opening books for the generations to come.

1. The Bible-4000 BC

What is life without the inspiration of the holy almighty resting above all of us.  A believer or not, everyone follows a set of norms in his life. In fact religion is all about leading our lives in a prescribed manner. The holy Bible, no doubt has done more to change the face of the world than any other text. The entire Roman Empire was converted from paganism to Christianity, after about 200 years of creation of this book. Since then Christianity has become the largest followed religion. The bible comprises two books- the Old Testament and the New Testament. When Gutenberg invented the printing press, the bible was the first book ever published. The sacred text is the most translated and the most purchased book in the world.
