Post Ayn Rand book sales hit 1million again in 2012
In a press release, the Ayn Rand Institute issues this:

Quote:
Thirty years after her death, novelist-philosopher Ayn Rand is still selling a lot of books, a million to be precise. The popular author of Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead has sold 1,000,000 copies of all of her titles in 2012.
2012 saw Atlas Shrugged sell 359,105 copies, its third highest total of all time, behind 2009 (#1) and 2011 (#2).
As the decades move along Rand has only gotten more popular. Atlas Shrugged was a bestseller in Rand’s day, but it’s selling more than ever in the 2010s. Annual purchases of Atlas Shrugged by decade averaged:
1980s — 74,300 per year
1990s — 95,300 per year
2000s — 167,028 per year
2010s — 303,523 per year
To date Rand’s books have sold a total of 29,500,000 copies. 2,962,876 of these have been requested from the Ayn Rand Institute by American school teachers
