Hillary Clinton's new book 'Hard Choices' is a 'bomb', according to a publishing source.
The former first lady's memoir - detailing her time as secretary of state under Obama - has sold just 60,000 hardcover copies and 24,000 e-books, the source told The Weekly Standard.
The results come after publisher Simon & Schuster's 'hoping and praying' that 150,000 print copies would be sold in the first week after the book went on sale on June 10, the source added.
'Between us, they are nervous at S&S,' the source said. 'Sales were well below expectations and the media was a disaster... It's a bomb, but it will be interesting to see how they spin it.'

Don’t buy books by crooks.
Wonder if someone will start buying them up just like they started buying up Ditsy Chick tickets.
[Anyone else recall the “sold out” shows that played to empty venues?]
I thought I’d heard that it was 3rd on NYT’s best-seller list. LOL!
WOW. Poor Hillary and Bill are going to be having trouble piecing together their money to do anything in the future if this keeps up.
Her constituency isn’t known for it’s literary tastes. They won’t purchase her book unless there’s pictures to be colored in.
I had heard that sales were good in terms of shipments from publisher to retailers. But sales to actual retail customers are very bad.
BOO FRICKIN’ WHO...
Think White Water........
Of the 60,000 hardcover copies sold, 600 were purchased by the press and the remainder were purchased in bulk to inflate the sales numbers.
Seriously, who but the most devoted Hillary sycophant would have any interest in reading that drivel? Less interesting than the instructions that come with a tube of Preparation H but 10,000 times longer.
Get the UAW, the NFT and every other union thug org to buy BOATLOADS of them!!!!!
Aren’t the unions buying their mandated quotas? The actual books would wind up in landfills, since the memberships can’t read, but it’s a way to funnel bribe money.
I only seen 1 book gone from the huge stack at Costco on Saturday. But then this is eastern Washington so I don’t know what they realistically expected in sales...
Saggy bags is old news. Her dumpster diving persona doesn’t excite the pop generation who would believe her book of lies.
What difference does it make?
Come on people!
Buy Hillary’s book.
She is dead broke.
And morally bankrupt.
Food for thought in case anyone really believes her election to POTUS is inevitable. I, for one, have in-laws who are knee-jerk, rabid leftists who HATE her.
If they had put Bill on the cover and the same name it would’ve sold like hotcakes.
Wow. This book could end up on the clearance sale rack soon.
