Local book sellers say Clinton's first day sales are "mediocre at best." They say Hillary's book actually did better when it hit shelves last June. Retailers say the book seems to be most popular in Clinton's home state of Arkansas, but at Harrisonburg's Books-A-Million, even pre-paid copies of the book aren't moving.
"I think a lot of it may be that some people are going to come in after work because some people didn't rush out to get it since they had to work in the morning, and then it just might be the area," says Kevin Winters with Books-A-Million.
The book has received harsh criticism from both sides of the political fence, which some say may have deterred readers who would otherwise check out the book.
