NOT A BAD FIRST WEEK, SARAH

Posted by Andrew Roman on November 27, 2009

From the “Just For Kicks and Giggles” file …

Not that I’m actually keeping track or anything.

Not that it really matters in the grand scheme of things.

Not that I’m going to take up a whole lot of space yammering like a child about it.

But…

Sarah Palins’ new book, Going Rogue: An American Life (you must have heard of it, it was in all the papers), sold 469,000 copies in its first week of publication. That’s seven times as many copies as Barack Obama’s book, Audacity of Hope, sold in 2007 (67,000).

In fact, according to Neilsen Bookscan, only Bill Clinton’s 2004 book, My Life, had a better first week showing among current or past presidents, or by presidential and vice presidential candidates. By contrast, Joe Biden’s 2007 book, Promises To Keep, sold 5,000 copies in its first week.

(insert muffled giggle)

Yes, I know it isn’t a contest.

Just sayin’.
