Iraq Study Group report an instant best seller
NEW YORK (CNN) -- While there is much debate over the findings of the Iraq Study Group released Wednesday, the book form of the panel's findings has already become a best seller.

Even as the White House was responding to the report's recommendations and members of Congress and other experts were debating its findings, people were snapping up copies of the book, entitled "The Iraq Study Group Report: The Way Forward - A New Approach.

At 7:15 a.m. Thursday, Barnes and Noble's Web site lists the book, published by Random House, as its No. 4 best seller, behind No. 1 seller, "The Joy of Cooking," the print and audio book "Bird Songs" and Michael Crichton's science fiction novel "Next."

Amazon.com reports that the paperback book is No. 10, on its list of best sellers. It said buyers of the report were also likely to buy a number of other books critical of U.S. handling of the war, including "State of Denial: Bush at War, Part III," by Bob Woodward and "Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq" by Thomas Ricks.

The 9/11 Commission report sold more than 1 million copies and was nominated for a National Book Award.
