Sales of Orwell's 1984 Soar In Wake of NSA Scandal

Weaselzippers has;
Sales of George Orwell's 1984 Continue To Soar In Wake Of NSA Sying Scandal: Four Different Editions in Amazon's Top 40

More on this story.
Via Politico:
As the story of the National Security Agency secret surveillance program exploded, sales of George Orwell’s “1984” – about a totalitarian state and government monitoring – have shot up on online book seller Amazon.
As of Wednesday morning, four different editions of the book are in the top 40 of Amazon’s “Movers and Shakers” list with the highest ranking at 17. At one point, the Centennial Edition’s popularity was up nearly 10,000 percent and clocked in at third most popular on the list.

Thank You Politico and Zip.

And why shouldn't they be reading 1984 when our Government is spending public monies to 'Diagnose' cripple and kill 'Thought Criminals'?
