The Alchemist 25th Anniversary

The Alchemist New York Times best seller

The Alchemist New York Times best seller

Paulo Coelho three books

worth their weight in gold

This year sees the 25th Anniversary of The Alchemist. It has been marked by the publication of a special 25th Anniversary collector’s limited edition of The Alchemist.

Today sees The Alchemist at No 4 in The New York Times bestseller list.

Today sees The Alchemist a record breaking 255 weeks in The New York Times bestseller list.

Not bad for a book that had an initial print run of 900 copies.

Not bad for a book about an Andalusian shepherd boy following his dreams.

Not bad for a book first published 25 years ago.

Not bad for a then unknown Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho.
