I ran a report showing which Bibles sold on our Bible sale. We sold a total of 219 Bibles. Here’s the breakdown by translation:
NIV – 96
ESV – 39
NLT – 23
KJV – 20
NKJV – 8
NASB – 6
Message – 5
HCSB – 2
Geneva Bible (1599 edition) – 1
Kingdom New Testament (N.T. Wright) – 1
NIrV – 1
We also sold 8 parallel Bibles and 9 One Year Bibles. These figures do not include children’s Bibles. We sold 16 NIV Study Bibles (various styles), 14 ESV Study Bibles (various styles), and 14 Life Application Study Bibles (various styles in NIV & NLT). The ESV Study Bible (ISBN 9781433532764) was the edition selling the most with 5 copies. Next was the Life Application Study Bible (ISBN 978031044733) which sold 3 copies. Everything else was 1’s and 2’s. None of my Catholic Bibles sold which leads me to think I need to move them from the Catholic section back to the Bible department. Still giving that some thought.
Overall this was a great sale. We had just slightly lower sales than last year which is not bad given we just moved into our new space.
