A day after the release of the redacted Mueller report, book versions of it occupied the top spots on Amazon's bestseller list.

You can read the redacted Mueller report right now, free, on the Department of Justice website. Or you can read it here on NPR.org.

But perhaps reading 448-page PDFs isn't your thing. Or you don't have enough ink to print all those pages, and someone would notice if you stood next to the office printer for the next 45 minutes or so, adding new reams of paper, only to see it print out black boxes obscuring portions of the text from the public.

Well, you wouldn't be alone: The Mueller report on the 22-month probe into Russia's interference in the 2016 election is now a bestselling book, even though its contents are free and widely available.

I have read a lot online but just now ordered the books. I want to have it handy to pass around.

1. Does that mean that Mueller is a 1%er now?

Where are Mueller's tax returns?

7. I couldn't help myself I had to look

It’s available on amazon as a preorder downloadable audio.
But it doesn’t look like Freeman or Hillary are the readers.
Also not sure how the read the redacted stuff perhaps the just say “blanked out”
😉

15. Samuel L Jackson would be a more forceful narrator.

But maybe we save his voice to read the verdict, hopefully.

18. All those placeholders at Amazon have been up for weeks, clearly planned ahead by opportunists...

...like Dershowitz as well as the civic-minded. Take your pick.

14. Why on earth

does it have an introduction by Alan Dershowitz, someone who said there "never should have been a Mueller report"?

16. Get the Washington Post published one instead

Dershowitz shouldn't get any money out of this.

17. Yeah

I was thinking the same thing. Besides the Washington Post version contains related material and analysis from The Washington Post. I can't imagine who thought it would be a good idea to have Dershowitz be any part of the book.

19. the book has an introduction by Alan Dershowitz and is a scam edition in that regard!!

It has been available to pre-order for months now.

Who is making money off THAT??!!
