Bush memoir sells big

Bushwave 
He didn't pull Harry Potter numbers - who does? - but former president George W. Bush sold more than 220,000 copies of his new memoir Decision Points through the first day of its release, with about 50,000 of those sales generated through e-book purchases, according to the Associated Press.

Publisher Random House reports that it's the highest one-day sale for one of its nonfiction titles since former President Bill Clinton's 2004 memoir My Life, which sold 400,000 on its debut day.

Decision Points came out Tuesday, with a first printing of 1.5 million. The former president appears at Miami Book Fair International at 4 p.m. Sunday, but if you don't have tickets already, you're out of luck.
