Some of those with a persuasion towards literature will appreciate this nugget of trivia I just gleaned from some pleasure reading (if you did not know it already).

Walton's The Compleat Angler is the third most-published work of English literature, behind the Bible and the "compleat" works of Wm Shakespeare.

I feel like I've read that bit of trivia before, Konchu, but had forgotten it. Thanks for sharing. It is a charming book.
