    Cool most sold...

    Hi,

    Is the following sentence correct?

    "This is the most sold book in the bookstores."

    So, the term "most sold" is wrong?

    It is not technically wrong but it does sound a little awkward. It would be more likely that you would hear someone say, "It is the most highly sold book in the stores," or, similarly to euncu, "the best-selling book in the stores."
