Hillary Clinton's "What Happened" had a big debut.

Clinton's book UA Stephen Curry Three Iron Sharpens Iron Mid Koripallokengät Harmaa Oranssi Suomi , about her stunning presidential election loss in 2016 to Donald Trump, sold more than 300,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The book's hardcover sales of 168,000 were the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years, according to NPD BookScan UA Stephen Curry Three Mid Koripallokengät Musta Suomi , which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen's "No Easy Day," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week.

Sales for "What Happened" far exceeded the first-week numbers of more than 100,000 copies for Clinton's book about her years as secretary of state, "Hard Choices," which came out in 2014 as she was preparing to launch her run for president. "What Happened" has been at or near the top of the Amazon best-seller list since its publication Sept. 12 despite a suspicious early wave of negative reader reviews, likely posted by commentators who had not read the book and later pulled by Amazon.

"The remarkable response to 'What Happened' indicates that, notwithstanding all that has been written and discussed over the last year, there is clearly an overwhelming desire among readers to learn about and experience UA Scorpio Juoksukengät Musta Valkoinen Suomi Ale , from Hillary Clinton's singular perspective, the historic events of the 2016 election," Simon & Schuster CEO Carolyn Reidy said in a statement. "In its candor and immediacy, 'What Happened' is satisfying that demand."

Clinton's all-time opening was for her memoir, "Living History," a 2003 release that included her first extended comments on the affair between her husband, President Bill Clinton UA Scorpio Juoksukengät Musta Hopea Suomi Ale , and White House intern Monica Lewinsky. "Living History" sold more than 600,000 copies in its first week and came out before the rise of e-books and before the collapse of the Borders superstore chain and the struggles of Barnes & Noble weakened the hardcover market.

Clinton, a Democrat, had promised to let her "guard down" for her first book to come out when she was neither in government nor seeking office. Responses to "What Happened," as with so much of Clinton's political career, have varied widely. Some contended that it was time to "move on" from the elections. Others countered that as the first woman nominated by a major political party she had a vital story to tell and an audience eager to hear about it. Reviewers have called "What Happened" everything from boring and self-serving to revelatory and poignant.

On Oct. 1, "What Happened" will debut at No. 1 on The New York Times' best-seller lists for hardcover and for combined e-book and hardcover. According to Simon & Schuster UA Scorpio Juoksukengät Musta Vihreä Suomi Netistä , the book set a company record for weekly digital audio sales and sold more e-book editions in a week than any nonfiction release from the publisher since Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs in 2011.

ATHENS, July 7 (Xinhua) -- The critical referendum concluded Sunday in Greece with a resounding "No" to creditors' debt deal terms, but the current mood in Athens is still heavy.

Posters and graffiti advocating "No" or "Yes" adorn the streets. Restaurants and cafes, where Greeks often spend their summer afternoons relaxing, lie half empty. There are still long lines in front of ATMs. Athens' public transportation -- free to use until further notice -- is remarkably empty.

"This result of the referendum -- a resounding 'No' -- was expected, " Nikos UA Stephen Curry Two Father to Son Mid Koripallokengät Pacific Europa Suomi , a young web developer in the northeastern suburb of Athens, said to Xinhua while waiting to withdraw money from an ATM.

He had voted "No" on Sunday alongside 61.3 percent of other Greeks, rejecting the new conditions associated with the EU bailout package.

For Nikos, Brussels represents oppression. "Millions have lost their jobs and thousands have committed suicide," he told Xinhua.

He said a "Grexit," or Greek exit from the eurozone, is his desired outcome. "When a country controls its own economy UA Stephen Curry Two Dub Nation Home Signature Mid Koripallokengät Valkoinen Suomi , it can produce better things," Nikos said.

But even for Nikos, the future is uncertain. "Nobody even thinks about his career. People know that they may be fired any day and their careers are independent of the referendum result," he said.

Indeed, Greeks -- a smiling, optimistic people on the whole -- are looking noticeably stressed. There are a lot less smiles on the streets. Metro carriages and buses -- usually filled with loud conversations and banter -- are almost completely silent. One can sense that something is definitely amiss, and the referendum result has not lifted the overall mood.

The capital control imposed recently by the Greek government UA Stephen Curry Two MVP Pack Back 2 Back Koripallokengät Valkoinen Musta Suomi , under which only 60 euros can be withdrawn daily from ATMs, is not a significant concern for Nikos.

"Sixty euros a day is 1800 euros a month, everybody spends much less than that -- even families," Nikos said.

A short distance away from the ATM from which Nikos was withdrawing money is a modern cafe, from which Jazz music was emanating. It was empty except for two customers sitting at an outdoor table.

Sarantis, the owner of the cafe, also voted "no" in the referendum. Originally from the town of Chania UA Stephen Curry Two MVP Mid Koripallokengät Valkoinen Kulta Suomi , Crete, Sarantis' family migrated to Athens 50 years ago.

"This 'no' is because the Greeks cannot hold up to so much pressure anymore -- the pressure has been pushing down on them for the last five to six years," Sarantis said.

The feeling of injustice is strong with Sarantis: He works up to 18 hours a day, and all his employees have been working there for more than 7 years.

Yet, for Sarantis and his five employee. Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China   Wholesale Hats   Wholesale NBA Jerseys   Wholesale MLB Jerseys   Wholesale Soccer Shirts   Wholesale NFL Shirts   Wholesale NFL Shirts   Wholesale Hats   Wholesale NHL Jerseys   Wholesale NCAA Hoodies
