A book shot to the top of Amazon's best selling books even though it features blank pages


A book intended as a joke became the top-selling book on Amazon. Written by conservative author Michael J. Knowles, "Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide" features blank pages--a dig at his Democratic rivals, according to the Associated Press.

The book has a table of contents, chapters, and a bibliography, but no text appears on the pages other than the book and chapter titles. It's described as "a political treatise sure to stand the test of time." 

The 266-page paperback book costs $8. 

In an interview with Fox News, Knowles said that when he took a look at the Democrats' "record and reasons to vote for them," he thought "it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank."

Amazon customers played along, too, by leaving acclaimed reviews.

"An absolutely stunning an enlightening book," one customer said. "It will forever change my voting choices after the guided and well-made reasoning in this book. Excellent book will defiantly recommend."

Exhaustive, yet concise, treatment of the reasons to vote for Democrats. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it as a teaching tool for any potential voter. This book is truly unparalleled," another said.
