Going Rogue Debuts At Number One On New York Times Best Seller List
In it’s first week out Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue, An American Life, has debuted in the coveted number one spot on the New York Times Best Sellers List.
Going Rogue reportedly sold 300,000 the first day and 700,000 the first week. HarperCollins, Sarah Palin’s publisher, seeing the way sales were going, had already ordered a second printing before the book actually was available on your favorite book store’s shelves. HarperCollins ordered the printing of an additional 1 million books to go along with the original 1.5 million first printing, which will bring the total printing, to date, to 2.5 million copies.
Sarah’s book replaces the previous week’s top seller, tennis champion Andre Agassi’s autobiography Open.
Few nonfiction books have debuted so well. In 2004, Bill Clinton’s My Life sold around 900,000 copies in its first week.
If you haven’t picked up your copy of Going Rogue, all I can say is: What are you waiting for!
