Theoretically, could I publish a one sentence book? Let's say that I'm bored and I want to publish a one sentence book. Like "Once upon a time upon a time upon a time the end." Could I publish that as a book online?

Yes, you can. You can write (and publish) anything you please. It's unlikely, though, that anyone will want to buy that book.

There are certainly cases were such a book that contains only a single sentence will sell: You are Stephen King (or otherwise famous). You have a great marketing campaign that fools buyers into believing that it's somehow meaningful for them to buy a one-sentence book. Or your one sentence is actually 224 pages long.

But in most cases a book that contains only one sentence of average length won't interest most readers.
