Most Overhyped Book Ever Bombs Badly: “It’s a bomb, but it will be interesting to see how they spin it”

Hillary Clinton

Obviously America isn’t Ready for Hillary. Despite a massively hyped book tour, endless television appearances and America constantly being reminded how wonderful this gasbag is, people aren’t quite rushing out to buy this nonsense.

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new book is called “Hard Choices” — but not many people have been choosing to buy it.

The former US first lady and New York senator’s tome is more bomb than bombshell, according to a new report on its sales.

The book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, was “hoping and praying” that 150,000 print copies had been sold in the first week, the source told the magazine.The 656-page book — in which Clinton (right) writes about her tenure as secretary of state under President Obama — has sold only 60,000 hardcover copies and 24,000 e-books in its first week, a source told The Weekly Standard.

“Between us, they are nervous at S&S,” the source said. “It’s a bomb, but it will be interesting to see how they spin it.”

The magazine said that some 1 million copies of the book were reportedly shipped when it went on sale June 10.

“The 60K represents a less than 10 percent sell- through based on what they shipped,” the source said. “They will be lucky to sell 150,000 total lifetime.”

Ouch. By contrast, Rush Limbaugh’s children’s book sold more copies in its first week of release last fall. That’s going to leave a mark. You can be assured the lamestream media won’t be reporting that fact.

Ladies and gentlemen, the official count of book sales is in for last week.  The official count is provided by a company called Nielson, TV ratings people, Nielsen BookScan.  The Nielsen BookScan for last week was in this morning.  Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims is the number one best-selling book in the country this week in any category, in all categories.  Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims is numero uno in adult, children, hardcover, paperback, fiction, nonfiction, 158,005 copies sold. 

The number two book, John Grisham and the hardcover of Sycamore Row at 82,000 copies sold. John Grisham’s debut week was 141,000, but actually our 158,000 number is not the total, because there were about 20,000 e-books sold. So we’re up to 176,115 copies the first week.  The second-place book is at 82,000.  And our publisher has informed me that if you count the sales that we know have happened Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, we’re over 200,000 books sold in our first week.  We are thrilled, we are excited, because of the mission that is this book. 

The angry left will tell us it’s because Limbaugh has a built-in audience, ignoring all the free publicity this battle-ax has gotten. Meanwhile, her drooling supporters still can’t name an accomplishment:

    The book doesn’t need to sell a single copy. This is just lobbying by other means or an alternative form of bundling. Various entities will buy up a large number of unrelated books from the same publisher and donate or destroy them. Thus the money is delivered and the FEC has nothing to say on the matter.

    Her biggest achievement as First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State is that she….wait for it……..wait for it… a woman! She is eminently qualified to be President if the United States–as then is 50% of the country! Low info mofos are going to be the end of this once great country.

    I was in a Barnes and Noble yesterday.
    I saw copies of Mrs. Clinton’s book in a stand alone display.
    They looked so lonely.

    Wow, way to put a spin on it. The book has only be out for one DAY!!!! Ya it has only sold 60k in the first week, so far. Give it another 6 days and see how many more are sold! At this rate it will sell 420k in a FULL WEEK. And, this is not even counting the ebooks sold. Add in a full week for the ebooks total of 148k sold, for a total of 568k sold in a week at the rate that it sold ON IT FIRST DAY!!!!!

    How predictable that it was spun in a negitive way on here.

    She can’t blame Bush for the rapid tanking of her novel. She can blame Obama, though. We’re just not in the mood for more lies from the second best liar in the country after five years of lies from the best.

    I still think she should have entitled it “It Takes a Village Idiot.”
