HILLARY BOOK REDUX
LIVING HISTORY sold 438,701 copies in its first full week, NIELSEN’s BOOKSCAN reveals.
The number represents scanned, purchased, sold and bagged copies at AMAZON, BARNES AND NOBLE, BORDER’S, COSTCO and other outlets.
This is over four times what the #2 book sold. If another 100,000-150,000 copies sell, Simon & Schuster will break even on the project.
Now, they need to sell another 3.5 million or so copies for Clinton to “earn” her advance, assuming she’s getting an average of 15% royalties of the discount price, which would amount to roughly $2.10 per book. Still, I’m shocked that this many people are willing to part with that much cash to read this book.
