Different Parts of the books and their meaning – best selling books

First off, what is a book? Well this is a collection of pages inside a cover that you can place in a shelf or often seen on the library. But on our time today an eBooks, blog and journal are considered as a book now.


Here are the different parts of the books and their meaning or functions:



Have you ever seen a book without a title? I doubt you did. Every book has their own title, they may not be unique but they will have a title on their front page. A title signifies or is the main topic for a certain book. Example is when you read a book with a title of “Algebra”, the first thing that you will think that it is a book of math algebra. It also identifies or it serves as a hint on what the book content is all about.



Every books has their own author, they are the one who wrote the book. It is important to write the author for a book because this will signify that he was the one who wrote the book and that it was his idea. Once a book was plagiarized, the author can apply the copyright law for the one who copied the book.



This is the company that prints the books. Well this is rather important because if no company decided to print your books then it won’t be published and it will not have the opportunity to be seen by people.



This depends if the book has its image, some books don’t have image so they won’t need an illustrator. Basically illustrators are the one who draw pictures for a book.



This is an introduction of written by the author for a book. It usually has acknowledgement for those who assisted the author in his work.


Table of Contents

This contains list of all the pages. This can really help if you are looking for certain page.



This is an additional matter that the author writes at the end of the book. This can be a document, text, etc.



This is commonly seen at the back end of the book. This is a list of words used by the author, usually hard words and in glossary they put the meaning of the words.




This is like the glossary except that it lists the names, subjects, etc with reference to where they occur. This can also be found at the end of the book.



This is where the content is put. They also call this as the body of the book. It contains all the information, story, etc. of a book.



This is a list of the books of a specific author or publisher, or on a specific subject.




Talking about book, you might want to look for the best selling books online or look for the author of the best selling books. I recommend looking for the books of Peter Sacco which has a lot of reader and has great content.
