Sales Of Clinton Book Slip In Third Week

NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton’s book “Hard Choices” is on track to be one of the year’s top nonfiction books despite another slip in sales.

Nielsen BookScan says “Hard Choices” sold 26,000 copies during its third week of publication.

Clinton’s memoir about her years as secretary of state was published June 10 and sold more than 80,000 copies the first week and nearly 50,000 the second week. The numbers don’t include e-book sales, which comprise around 30 percent of the overall market.

“Hard Choices” has been the No. 1-selling nonfiction hardcover on The New York Times’ list for three straight weeks but has slipped on, ranking No. 57 as of Thursday night.

Clinton’s “Living History” was published in 2003 and sold more than 1 million copies.
