A book published last month compiling new anti-graft regulations is becoming popular.
New Rules on Clean Governance after the 18th Congress lists regulations issued after the Party gathering in November 2012 when the new leadership was elected.
At least 17 new clean-governance regulations had been issued by central authorities as of late March, according to the book.
Bookstores snapped up the first 25,000 copies of the book, said its publisher, the People's Publishing House.
The book, priced at 15 yuan ($2.40), is also being sold at a number of online shopping websites including amazon.cn and jd.com. Buyers have to wait for several days after submitting an online order due to the high demand.
One of the best known rules came in December 2012, when the top ruling Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee put forward the "eight-point" regulation, which urged officials to get close to the public by cleaning up undesirable work styles, including extravagance, hedonism and excessive bureaucracy.
"The rules covered many aspects, including boosting frugality, public receptions, buying gifts with public funds, the supervision of leaders, construction of government building, use of government vehicles and buying fireworks during festivals," the publisher said.
