'Fire and Fury' sales top 29,000 in first weekend

NEW YORK (AP) -- Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" sold more than 29,000 hardcover copies in its first week of publication, NBD BookScan tells The Associated Press.

That number, announced Wednesday, is likely to grow far higher in future reports. Wolff's explosive tell-all about the Trump administration only came out last Friday and BookScan's weekly sales run through Saturday.

"Fire and Fury" has been so in demand that retailers have struggled to keep it in stock, with Amazon.com warning of delays of two to four weeks for delivery. BookScan, which tracks about 85 percent of the retail market, only counts an order as a sale once the book has been shipped.

BookScan numbers also don't include e-books. Publisher Henry and Holt says sales for the digital edition exceed 100,000.
