Skip to comments.Disappointment for Hillary Clinton as sales for her memoir 'struggle in its first week'
Posted on 06/17/2014 9:36:59 AM PDT by jimbo123
Hillary Clinton's new book 'Hard Choices' is a 'bomb', according to a publishing source.
The former first lady's memoir - detailing her time as secretary of state under Obama - has sold just 60,000 hardcover copies and 24,000 e-books, the source told The Weekly Standard.
The results come after publisher Simon & Schuster's 'hoping and praying' that 150,000 print copies would be sold in the first week after the book went on sale on June 10, the source added.
'Between us, they are nervous at S&S,' the source said. 'Sales were well below expectations and the media was a disaster... It's a bomb, but it will be interesting to see how they spin it.'

Don’t buy books by crooks.
Wonder if someone will start buying them up just like they started buying up Ditsy Chick tickets.
[Anyone else recall the “sold out” shows that played to empty venues?]
I thought I’d heard that it was 3rd on NYT’s best-seller list. LOL!
WOW. Poor Hillary and Bill are going to be having trouble piecing together their money to do anything in the future if this keeps up.
Her constituency isn’t known for it’s literary tastes. They won’t purchase her book unless there’s pictures to be colored in.
I had heard that sales were good in terms of shipments from publisher to retailers. But sales to actual retail customers are very bad.
BOO FRICKIN’ WHO...
Think White Water........
Of the 60,000 hardcover copies sold, 600 were purchased by the press and the remainder were purchased in bulk to inflate the sales numbers.
Seriously, who but the most devoted Hillary sycophant would have any interest in reading that drivel? Less interesting than the instructions that come with a tube of Preparation H but 10,000 times longer.
Get the UAW, the NFT and every other union thug org to buy BOATLOADS of them!!!!!
Aren’t the unions buying their mandated quotas? The actual books would wind up in landfills, since the memberships can’t read, but it’s a way to funnel bribe money.
I only seen 1 book gone from the huge stack at Costco on Saturday. But then this is eastern Washington so I don’t know what they realistically expected in sales...
Saggy bags is old news. Her dumpster diving persona doesn’t excite the pop generation who would believe her book of lies.
What difference does it make?
Come on people!
Buy Hillary’s book.
She is dead broke.
And morally bankrupt.
Food for thought in case anyone really believes her election to POTUS is inevitable. I, for one, have in-laws who are knee-jerk, rabid leftists who HATE her.
If they had put Bill on the cover and the same name it would’ve sold like hotcakes.
Wow. This book could end up on the clearance sale rack soon.
She chafes when she walks, she really chafes when she talks and she must light her papers on fire because she must chafe hard writing all that envy on paper.
If you have a Book-Off store nearby, Hillary’s “book” will probably be available at $1 each.
And it would have been shelved in the same section as ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’!
Ah! One small bright spot in today’s news.
The doormat is pathetic.
They’re too lazy for that, the picture has to be pre-colored so they just have to run a wet brush over it.
I’m predicting George Soros will buy a few thousand copies so as to boost Hillary as a formidable candidate for 2016.
Her book was 30% off at Barnes and Noble last week (40% for members). She’s coming to Seattle tomorrow. Line-ups start at 9 am, and you have to get a $38 wristband to even get in and get a signed copy of her book!
He said her title should have been used by Slick on a book about Monica.
If Hillary can’t sell her book in Seattle, she is in even worse trouble.
Maybe they can sell some of the furniture they took from the White House.
I keep getting B&N coupons for the book at 40% off before my membership. They can’t move these at half price or NOOK price.
I was living in Houston when the whole Chick thing happened. My biggest laugh was when I went on eBay to see how much the tickets were being scalped to the “sold out” show......there was a pair of front row tickets that had an asking price of $1.00......I’m pretty sure they didn’t sell. I immediately broke in half and tossed in the trash the DC cds I had.......loved that that pretty much finished off their careers. I remember that the (now ex) husband of one of the sisters came out and said that the two sisters didn’t agree with Natalie but they couldn’t keep their mouths shut (he was trying to save their careers) and came out and said that yes, they did agree with her. Nice career while they had it.
Not to worry. George Soros will buy a million copies (with the assurance that once she’s elected he’ll be paid back with interest).
Hummmm, maybe if she had just used Bill Ayers as her Ghost writer......
Saw a copy prominently displayed in a small indie bookstore in Moscow, ID, the other day. Even the university liberals are giving it a pass. Actually, I heard snickering.
Man, you deal with the Clintons, they get rich, you get screwed.
Not to worry; Soros or some one like him will buy them all up, it has been done for democrats before, just so she can fund her campaign with proceeds from the book.
I feel bad for her and Willy, you know, all those bills and being broke and what not...
“So 15% of the staff is going to get the boot thanks to Hillary.”
I have the perfect idea for a farewell gift for the staff.
The good news is that Dr.Ben Carson’s book is #1 on the NYT best smeller list for two weeks now...even though the press has blacked out coverage of his book, while covering that old Marxist hag like a blanket.
The liberals have moved on to Elizabeth Warren.
The poor destitute woman. How will she survive on only an 8 million dollar pittance. Can we take up donations for her? I don’t want her to have to stop buying wagu beef and flying private jets.
Unless they spend more than they take.
Will everyone else here who has been thrown-out the door of your job with just 15 minutes to fill a cardboard box raise their hands?
LOL! Well played!
maybe a nude photo or two of the Klintoons
would have helped sales.
