Hillary Clinton book sales top 100,000 in first week

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s “Hard Choices” sold well enough during its first week to make it among the year’s most popular nonfiction books. But its opening was also far slower than that for her previous memoir, “Living History.”

According to Simon & Schuster, “Hard Choices” has sold more than 100,000 copies since coming out June 10. By comparison, first-week sales in 2003 for “Living History” were around 600,000 copies.

A likely factor: “Living History” included her first extended comments on the affair between President Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Anticipation for “Hard Choices,” which covers her four years as secretary of state, focused more on whether Clinton would drop any hints about a presidential run. “Hard Choices” ends with Clinton saying she is still undecided.
