More than two and a half billion Bibles have been made. If you put them on a long bookshelf and started driving along the shelf at 65 mph (104 kph), you would have to drive 40 hours per week for four months to get to the end. All these Bibles would fill the New York public library 467 and one-half times.

A typical Bible contains 3,566,480 letters, or 810,697 words.

One of the first-ever printed books was the Bible, pressed by Johannes Gutenburg in Germany around the year 1450. Only 49 complete or nearly complete copies remain.
