Obama's #1...and #2

Three days after the election, Barack Obama's The Audacity of Hope and Dreams from My Father are #1 and #2, respectively, on Amazon's bestsellers list. The new book Change We Can Believe In comes in at #11. Dreams from My Father is holding steady at #2 at Powell's with The Audacity of Hope moving up to #15. Meanwhile, Barnes & Noble lists Hope at #1, Dreams at #2, Change at #3, the hardcover publication of Hope at #7 and the new Barack Obama in His Own Words at #8. Seems that winning the presidency is good for your book sales.
