Former U.S. President George W Bush's memoir has sold an astonishing two million copies since it was released in early November - and it's not even in paperback yet. 'Decision Points', published both in hardcover and e-book form, is flying off the shelves, the Crown Publishing Group says. By contrast, former president Bill Clinton's memoir, 'My Life', has logged sales of 2.2million copies since it was first published in 2004.
Now let's see....
What could be the reason for this?
Could it be that there are Bush supporters out there who are interested in his time in The White House? Nah!
Could it be that there are political junkies who are interested in reading about Bush's policy decisons? Nah!
According to MSNBC, people are buying Decision Points as a joke, a gag gift. Or maybe because they hate Bush so much they want to know just "What was he thinking?!"
It may be the fact that he was hated by so many people actually helped fuel his book sales because people wanted to hear him actually justify himself and explain some of his decisions that he made. And, you know, there are, I mean, you can imagine that some people bought it as a gag or some people got it, received it as a gift and didn’t really want it.
