Downloads of The Iraq Study Group Report are outpacing sales of the 84-page report in book form 40:1. (Locally, the book is the No. 1 nonfiction paperback book on the bestseller list below.)

While the report has been downloaded for free a total of 1.6 million times (from the U.S. Institute of Peace and the James A. Baker Institute websites), about 38,000 copies of the $10.95 book were sold in the week ending Dec. 10. Random House published the book on Dec. 6, the same day it became available online.
