Hillary Clintons most recent memoir is not doing so well. Hard Choices sold only 26,000 copies in its third week on the market, down 46 percent from the previous week.
Its currently number 51 on the Amazon Best Sellers List, which is worth putting into context. Here are a few of the books that are ranked higher than Hard Choices:

At this rate she’s gonna be a Hillionaire in no time.
What kind of advance did she get on this book?
It sounds like the commie lib ‘RATS aren’t as “ready for Hillary” as they thought they were.
Has the DNC already placed their order for 500,000 copies?
Here’s a quarter Hillary - go call someone who cares.
and she has earned that 7 cents already I think
But it’s Number One on the “you couldn’t pay me enough to take a copy” list!
You realize that most Millennials have no idea what that references...
Yup! They probably think it means something about them calling one of their hookers.
The problem is that the royalties are determined by the profit the books make. In this case I don’t think they have even sold out the first edition. I suspect there will be no second edition or even a paperback. This one’s going from the press directly to the shredder.
They might send some to the Dollar Stores or the 99 cent stores, but those stores usually don’t buy stuff that they know won’t sell.
“most Millennials have no idea” period !
This is why there was so much pressure to boost the first week’s numbers - in publishing sales, each week is a scaled-down version of the week before.
So if x books were sold the first week, week 2 is 50% of that, week 3 is 50% of week 2, etc. (This is the rough rule-of-thumb for unexceptional books - exceptional ones obviously have more staying power). Adding it up, Hillary’s book will be lucky to break 200,000.
Plus, knowing the sales pattern, any attempt by Hillary’s minions to buy up vast quantities to boost sales now will look highly suspicious.
Yeh Helly got that 14 large advance ‘cankling around money’ from Simon got Shystered. They took it on the chin but no one’s gives a carp and serves them right for fawning over US Queenie and a bad misjudgement on their part. When lieberals lose money its a beautiful thang.
26,000? That has to be less than one book per retail outlet even if you exclude big internet retailers.
