Atlas Shrugged Tops Amazon’s Bestseller List

From an Ayn Rand Institute press release:

Earlier this year Ayn Randâ??s prophetic novel Atlas Shrugged was selling at triple the rate it sold at in the beginning of 2008. Now the novel is soaring to even greater heights, and its trade paperback edition is currently in first place in the Classics category on Amazon.comâ??s best-seller list for sales in the United States. The 50th anniversary mass-market paperback edition of Atlas Shrugged ranks as #2 and the trade paperback Centennial edition ranks as #3. For several weeks Atlas Shrugged has been holding steady in the top 10 best-sellers in the broader United States Literature and Fiction category, and as of the writing of this release, different editions of the novel stand at #3, #5 and #6 in Amazonâ??s ranking.

As I’ve mentioned before, this could be the start of the most widespread and meaningful discussion of Ayn Randâ??s ideas in our lifetime.
