More than 1.1 million copies of former President George W. Bush's memoir, "Decision Points," have been sold since its release earlier this month, his publisher said on Wednesday.

More than 135,000 e-books were bought, and copies in print now number around 2.1 million, Crown publishers said.

Since "Decision Points" hit bookshelves on November 9, Bush has been making rounds of the media to promote it. He has joked with Oprah Winfrey that he was "through with politics."

"A lot of people didn't think I could read, much less write," Bush cracked about the book to Winfrey.

His appearance on U.S. morning chat show "Today" resurrected old animosity about his administration's handling of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and he has defended the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, faulty intelligence that the former Iraqi government possessed weapons of mass destruction and his administration's handling of the financial crisis.
