Popular Italy Books

Eat,Pray,Love – Elizabeth Gilbert, 2007

Ever wondered which books people read when they think about Italy?  Well, one easy way to find out is to see what’s hot on Amazon.  In this case, it’s Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk from which I’ve compiled a list of the best selling books on Italy.  If you are stuck for Christmas present inspiration, then this post might be a gift to you.

Before you look at the complete list, try to guess which books on Italy people are reading.

Some may surprise you, as the Italian connection is not always that obvious.

Here are two top ten lists, which might become a Christmas gift list too.  Interesting to see what’s popular in the USA compared to what interests UK readers too.
