Going Rogue

Palin Second Only to Bubba in Book Sales

She may have never held national executive office, but when it comes to book sales, Sarah Palin can hang with the presidents. In its first week of sales, Going Rogue sold 469,000 copies which is more than any memoir by current or past president or presidential contender, save Bill Clinton. Clinton’s My Life sold 606,000 copies in 2004; Hillary Clinton’s Living History sold 440,000 copies in 2003. Palin’s memoir also beat out new books by James Patterson and Stephen King in sales.
