    WSJ: Atheism, the new readers’ market

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | June 25, 2007

    God is Not Great
    Jeffrey A. Trachtenberg of The Wall Street Journal writes about the surprising success of Christopher Hitchens’ God is Not Great (Twelve, 2007). Twelve originally printed a modest 40,000 copies. Demand has been so strong that booksellers and wholesalers were unable to get copies a short time after it hit stores, creating what the publishing industry calls a “dark week.” Today, seven weeks after the book went on sale, there are 296,000 copies in print. There seems a booming market in No God books. The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins has 500,000 and Letters to a Christian nation has almost 200,000. That is of curse but a fraction of a fraction of the number of Bibles, Torahs and Korans sold over time.
