Bookstores Struggle With Demand for Trump Tell-All Fire and Fury

Shelf Awareness reports that the “furor over Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House (Holt) continued on Friday and over the weekend,” with attacks from the president himself as well as his supporters. “If the book retailing world has any regrets, it’s that it can’t fully meet Fire and Fury demand. From indies to Barnes & Noble to Amazon, booksellers of all kinds said they don’t have enough copies or don’t have any because they didn’t receive shipments in time for the new pub date last Friday.”

Bookstores shared their reactions. Changing Hands in Arizona tweeted, “So gratifying to know that books and readers have the power to terrify a president who thinks nothing of violating your First Amendment rights.” Astoria Bookshop in New York “announced that it is donating profits from Fire and Fury to the Voting Rights Initiative and the N.Y. Immigration Coalition because ‘ensuring that every citizen has the ability to vote, and that immigrants have access to healthcare, housing, education, and legal representation are two missions that we believe will make America a better place for everyone who lives here.’” Solid State Books in Washington, D.C., tweeted, “If you’re still, like, looking for Fire & Fury, it doesn’t take, like, a very stable genius to know, that, like, we have bigly numbers of copies, like, arriving Monday morning. It’s gonna be huge!”
