Sales of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged Triple

The Ayn Rand Center reports that sales of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” have almost tripled over the first seven weeks of this year compared with sales for the same period in 2008. This continues a strong trend after bookstore sales reached an all-time annual high in 2008 of about 200,000 copies sold.

Michelle Malkin reports the appearance of a new bumper sticker:

(Hat tip: Wizbang)

I read Atlas Shrugged in college. It has remained an influence on me to this day, although I've come to regard it as a so-so novel with long speeches. In light of current events, it's starting to look like prophecy.
