‘Going Rogue’ Tops Publishers Weekly’s Nonfiction Book List for 2009

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 23, 2010

The Hartford Book Examiner discusses the Publishers Weekly list of bestsellers for 2009:

On Monday, Publishers Weekly unveiled their annual list of bestselling fiction and non-fiction hardcover titles for last year. The list encompasses books that were published between 2008 and 2009 and reflects sales during the calendar year of 2009.

[…]

In non-fiction, Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue received a vote of confidence from readers, landing in the poll position and outselling Ted Kennedy’s True Compass 3:1. While lifestyle, feel-good, and self-help books have fared well in recent years, 2009 reflected a more politically-minded, culturally divisive readership.

[…]

It should be noted that e-book sales were not included in this year’s tally, though they will be next year.

The following are the ten top-selling titles in fiction and non-fiction. (An asterisk denotes a title whose sales figures were provided in confidence, to be used for ranking purposes only.)

Sarah Palin’s PAC Raises $2.1 Million in 2009

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 30, 2010


In spite of the fact that Governor Palin spent the last half of 2009 writing her book and promoting it and did little active fundraising, SarahPAC raised $2.1 million last year, of which $1.4 million was raised during the last 6 months of the year.

According to Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post (h/tp C4P):

“We are thrilled,” said Palin senior adviser Meg Stapleton about the fundraising total. “Common sense Americans know the direction we need to take this country and that Sarah Palin will be instrumental in taking us there this year.”

For the year, Palin raised roughly $2.1 million through Sarah PAC and ended the year with $900,000 in the bank. She donated $64,600 to candidates and party committees….

Sarah PAC sent no direct mail — a potential treasure trove of small-dollar donations for the former governor who is beloved by the grassroots of the party — and raised the majority of her money via the Internet and small events. For the 11 months that Sarah PAC has existed, she has received contributions from more than 14,000 donors….

“We are excited as we feel that we’ve just begun to tap the Governor’s support,” said Sarah PAC treasurer Tim Crawford.
