911 REPORT READS LIKE A NEW YORK TIMES RUNAWAY FICTION BESTSELLER!
Panel's '9/11 Report' Becoming a Big Seller!!!!
The 9/11 Commission Report, released Thursday, is selling so briskly that its publisher announced a second printing Monday.W.W. Norton, which published the $10 paperback in cooperation with the bipartisan federal panel that investigated the 2001 terrorist attacks, estimates it sold 350,000 copies through Sunday.With bookstores from Portland, Ore., to Washington, D.C., out of stock, Norton says it's printing another 200,000 copies in addition to the 600,000-copy first printing.The 9/11 Report "is flying out of our stores," says Barnes & Noble's Bob Wietrak, who adds that he can't think of another book "that affects so many Americans. All the other books (on 9/11) told pieces of the story. This is the story."
