Obama’s Book Sales Riding the Tsunami
Posted on Nov 10, 2008
Nothing like winning a presidential election to send your book sales through the roof, as Barack Obama and his presumably gleeful publishers are discovering. Obama’s two books, “Dreams From My Father” and “The Audacity of Hope,” were already best-sellers without the post-election bump, but now they’re selling big even in John McCain’s home state.

On the weekend after he became the country’s first black president-elect, Obama’s “The Audacity of Hope” and “Dreams from My Father,” both already million sellers, ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.
Both hardcover and paperback editions of “Audacity of Hope” were out of stock Sunday on Amazon.
