Regardless of your political leanings, the book nerd in you might be interested in knowing how politics can help a book get bumped all the way up to the bestseller lists.

According to NPR:

“The Amazon bestseller list has become something of a political barometer of late. Recently Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis’s memoir March rose to the top after President Trump criticized him for questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election. Since the election, Hillbilly Elegy, a memoir that has become a guide to working-class America, has been at or near the top of the list. Now the classic dystopian novel 1984, written by George Orwell and published in 1948, is number one.”
