Trump Tell-All Breaks S&S Record

From Publishing Perspectives:

Another demonstration of the “bookseller in chief” at work: Simon & Schuster announces this morning (July 16) that Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man by Mary Trump, the niece of Donald Trump, sold more than 950,000 copies through its release date Tuesday (July 14).

That combined sales figure includes pre-orders and first-day sales of print books, ebooks, and downloaded audiobooks in the United States market, and is a company record.

The publisher has ordered a 14th printing of the book that, when completed, will bring the number of hardcover copies in print to more than 1,150,000.

PG says if Simon & Schuster had any sense of decency, they would at least name a conference room after the President.

    <snark> An impossible conditional in commercial publishing? Never! </snark>

  2. As with The Goldfinch, and the supposed ‘sequels’ to both GWTW (Scarlett) and To Kill a Mockingbird (GSAW), I wonder how many of those books will actually be read all the way through to the end.

    Some books are bought for their status as objects, not for the reading experience.

    I wish Dr. Trump well on her book, and have absolutely no desire to read it. Or buy it.
