Sales figures are out for Sarah Palin’s memoir, Going Rogue. In its first week on store shelves, the book sold 700,000 copies, according to publisher HarperCollins. That’s enough to put it high atop the week’s bestseller lists.
For comparison, Bill Clinton’s memoir sold just over 600,000 copies in its first week on sale back in 2004.
The NY Post points out that while most of the sales have come from the nation’s heartland, Going Rouge is selling well in some unlikely places -- 21,000 copies were sold in the New York City metropolitan area. That figure alone would be enough to land on the bestseller list some weeks.
