Taking to Instagram, Piers first rejoiced that Wake Up had jumped from 1,800 to number nine.
He told his followers: "Two days ago, Wake Up was No1800, now it's No2.
"Great to see people really care about free speech.
"Let's get it to No1 and show the cancel culture wokies they will never win."
Just six hours later, Piers updated his 1.5million followers to say his book is now sitting at the No2 slot. He celebrated by posting four flame emojis.
Piers' shock exit from GMB came after ITV bosses asked him to apologise live on air for his comments earlier this week about Meghan Markle.
Piers refused and walked away from his job instead.
The news about his book sales came hours after he urged his 'supporters' in a lengthy handwritten letter to buy it.
The read is described as being "for people sick and tired of being told how to think, speak, eat and behave".
Piers said: "It’s less than a tenner.
"I didn’t write it to make more money but because the very foundations of democracy, built upon freedom of expression, freedom of thought and freedom of speech, are under attack like never before and must be defended.
"It is a privilege to live in a democracy, and it is a privilege to be British.
"As I said when I left GMB, the right to free speech is a hill worth dying on. So, have a read, and if you like it, give it to one of your friends."
Meanwhile, Piers' showbiz pals have backed his decision to quit Good Morning Britain.
Amanda Holden described Piers as "Marmite", insisted they don't always share the same opinion, but called him a "good and loyal friend".
Musician Myleene Klass and cricketers Michael Vaughan, Shane Warne and Kevin Pietersen have also thrown their support behind him.
