Heavy downloads for 'Go the (Bleep)' audiobook
NEW YORK (AP) — The world just can't get enough of Samuel L. Jackson and four-letter words.
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 audiobooks, 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 this week. It was No. 1 on Amazon as of midday Thursday.
