Parents only bedtime story flying off shelves | Parents & kids
There's a new book out there that looks like a children's book and may sound a little like a children's book but it is definitely NOT for children. It's called " Go the (Bleep) to Sleep" and it is for any parent who has ever had a bedtime battle with their little ones and doesn't mind a little salty language.
The book is so popular some book stores are having a hard time keeping it in stock.
This week "The Booksellers at Laurelwood" posted on their Facebook page they sold out of the book after only 24 hours. They received a second shipment and quickly sold out of that too.
The book's popularity is partially thanks to a free audio recording by Samuel L. Jackson. A free version of the actor's cussing audio of the best-selling "Go the (Bleep) to Sleep" has been downloaded 160,000 times since becoming available two days ago, audio publisher Audible Inc. announced Thursday.
It's a huge number for audio books, but not a record.
The final Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," sold more than 200,000 audio copies during its first 48 hours.
The hardcover of "Go the (Bleep) to Sleep," Adam Mansbach's adults-only bedtime lament, officially went on sale last week. It was No. 1 on Amazon as of midday Thursday.
So parents be warned, you might enjoy the humor in the book, but don't share it with your kids if you can get your hands on a copy.
