Who cares what the 2nd most read book in the colonies was?

I figured that this question has been coming up n almost every thread it deserved its own. The only reason that I care is so it just goes awaw

Before it was a question being asked over and over again it never even crossed my mind. If it was ever something I learned I forgot it like many other useless facts. If it is something of actual value, here we go.


Enjoy

"In the colonies" when? In 1650 or 1750, or from the time there were just two colonies (got to be two in order to use the plural) until we won the revolution and were no longer colonies of England but states in the United States.

It WOULD make a pretty good trivia question, but that's about all it would be good for.

What is the point of starting this thread as you have proclaimed that you have no interest in history?

It isn't much of a trivia question. It lasted from the first charter of Virginia on 1607 until the last charter in 1776, but is generally referred to as 1607-1775.

How about Don Quixote? It is, after all, one of the most popular books ever written and was available in an English translation as early as 1615.
