Political books are selling like hotcakes — with Bob Woodward’s critical look at President Donald Trump setting a feverish sales pace on its release day of one-copy-per-second, CNBC reported.

Citing data from bookstore chain Barnes & Noble, CNBC reported there’s been a 57 percent boost in political book sales from a year earlier.

But the boost appears to be as polarized as the country itself, with states voting for Trump in 2016 tending to favor books casting him in a friendlier light — and Hillary Clinton-voting states favoring books critical of the president, the data shows.

Here’s the top four sellers so far in 2018, according to B&N data:

  • Woodward’s “Fear: Trump in the White House;”
  • Former FBI Director James Comey's memoir, "A Higher Loyalty;” 
  • The gossipy tell-all "Fire and Fury" by Michael Wolff; and
  • Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett's "The Russia Hoax," which lays out a case against special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The late Sen. John McCain's book "The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations," also clinched a spot on the top 10 list for 2018, CNBC reported.
