Sarah Palin No. 1 Two Weeks in a Row

USA Today reports that Sarah Palin's Going Rogue: An American Life is number 1 again. It's only the 9th book this year to repeat at that spot.

Palin has sold a million copies of her autobiography in two weeks. The only political autobiography to beat it was Bill Clinton's My Life which sold a million copies in eight days.

USA Today gives a boost to a spoof of Going Rogue coming out this week. Even with USA Today's free publicity, I bet the spoof doesn't make USA Today's top 150 list. But, then USA Today is having its own problems with a circulation drop of 393,000 (-17.15%) in the last year.

Amazon has audio versions available of Going Rogue. There's an Audible download for $15.74 and a CD package for $17.54.

Sarah Palin is the reader. She does a very good job. When I read the first six pages in the hard copy, I thought they were slow moving. But, they pick up both speed and interest when she reads them.
