Is there any way to know how many books have been written by mankind?
I mean even a guess would be nice :)
There is no way to tell how long mankind has been around. The census books suggest that it has been over 4.6 billion years. For more information, please waste your time at http://www.wikipedia.org/
i would check a downloadable book libary over 3 milion books on the one i have!
One way to know how many books have been written by mankind would be by going through the entire library. It would be hard coming up with the exact figure as you may not be able to list all the books known to have been written.
I think this will be impossible to estimate because of how many books were burnt in book burnings before they were published.
You know, I don't think there is. I live random questions :)
Have a census go around to all libraries in America checking how many different titles each library owns.
I hope you like counting and you're not banned from the library... ;)~Alicia
