Blank Book Titled ‘Reasons To Vote For Democrats’ Reaches Number One on Amazon
A book titled Reasons To Vote For Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide has reached the number one spot on Amazon‘s best sellers list, despite it consisting of nothing more than blank pages.
“Written” by author Michael J. Knowles, the book’s description on its Amazon page reads: “The most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date, “Reasons To Vote For Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide” is a political treatise sure to stand the test of time.” However, in reality it contains over 250 blank pages in an expensive joke at the Democratic party’s expense.
The book, endorsed by The Daily Wire‘s editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro, is but the latest in a series of barbed shots delivered between conservatives and liberals as a result of last year’s US election, though Knowles’ elaborate joke has proven to be particularly successful. Despite being priced at $8 — a lot of money for a collection of blank pages — Reasons To Vote For Democrats has sold enough copies to climb to the top of Amazon’s best sellers list, beating out Tony Robbins’ Unshakeable and George W. Bush’s Portraits of Courage.
Knowles appeared on FOX News to discuss the success of his book in a tongue-in-cheek interview. During the interview, Knowles claimed that he was working on a follow-up which would contain the “history of Hillary Clinton’s presidency.”
But despite the popularity of Knowles’ book, with it garnering mostly positive (and sarcastic) reviews on Amazon among its 1,200 buyers, it isn’t exactly an original work. Back in November 2016, a book titled Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration garnered a significant amount of popularity, with it featuring 206 blank pages.
