Khan held up a copy during his powerful speech

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child may be the most sought after book this week, but a storied history text is hot on its tails. A pocket edition of the U.S. constitution became a best seller on Amazon after Khizr Khan held up a copy while making a powerful speech at the Democratic National Convention last week.

In his speech, Khan flashed his well-worn pocket constitution while discussing Republican nominee Donald Trump’s comments about banning Muslims from entering the United States. Khan, the father of an American Muslim soldier who was killed by a car bomb while serving in Iraq, addressed the convention and said, “Donald Trump, you are asking Americans to trust you with their future. Let me ask you: Have you even read the United States Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy. In this document, look for the words ‘liberty’ and ‘equal protection of law.'”

By Saturday afternoon, a pocket edition from the National Center for Constitutional Studies was in the Top 10 best-selling books on Amazon. (Khan’s edition is the ACLU Pocket Constitution of the United States.) The copy normally costs $5, but in honor of Khan, the ACLU tweeted that they have made it available for free. You can pick one up here with the coupon code POCKETRIGHTS.
