Going Rogue: NY Times #1

Governor Palin's Going Rogue: An American Life has lived up to the hype.

The New York Times reports (emphasis added):

“Going Rogue,” the newly released memoir by Sarah Palin, the former Alaskan governor and Republican nominee for vice president, sold 469,000 copies in its first week of release, according to sales figures released Wednesday by Nielsen BookScan. That made “Going Rogue” the top-selling book of the week on Nielsen BookScan’s chart, putting it ahead of new releases from authors like James Patterson (whose novel “I, Alex Cross” was No. 2) and Stephen King (whose novel “Under the Dome” placed at No. 3), as well as Dan Brown’s best-selling potboiler “The Lost Symbol.” The book will also make its debut at No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list for nonfiction on Dec. 6.

Ms. Palin’s book also had the second-best first-week sales of any memoir by a current or past president, or vice presidential or presidential contender, Nielsen BookScan said.

[...]

HarperCollins, which released “Going Rogue,” said the book’s overall first-week sales totaled 700,000 copies. Nielsen BookScan does not record sales at some mass-market retailers, like Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club.

Just heard that 2 1/2 Million books sold and it is in second print.

God is good all the time.
I will Praise the LORD! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty heavens. Praise Him for His mighty deeds; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.
Psalm 150:1-2

I finally received my copy from Newsmax!

Now I can read the REAL story as only Sarah can tell it.

Adrienne, wish I knew, when I spoke to you in Rochester / Henrietta, that you are a fellow believer. My name is Allan Smith and I spoke with you, as you stood near the front door of Borders, with extension chords in your hand. I was wearing an Oath Keeper shirt and spoke to you about what they stand for. My God's grace, perhaps we shall meet again. I'm an avid photographer and wish I'd have taken mine with me for the signing but had been told that cameras were not welcom there. GOD BLESS YOU and your work with Sarah.

TheMouse,

Yes, I remember talking to you about your shirt. I was wondering, also, if the shirt had to do with Christ; that's why I asked about it! Well, praise God, brother!

Great question. If you get a chance, look up Oath Keepers on YouTube, specifically the videos done on April 19th, in Lexington, MA. The Gathering on the Green was opened by Parson Garret Lear who opened the Gathering in prayer ... and I don't mean a politically correct "prayer" either. When I first met the founder(s) of Oath Keepers, I did so, not knowing their spiritual standing with God. I went to meet with them, doing so as a minister for Christ, to bring a message to them, to encourage them to actively seek God's will in their lives. I consider Oath Keepers part of my "mission field". I've been pleased to find out the # of believers that there are in Oath Keepers, not the least of which is Chauncey Normandin, Navy CDR David Gillie and Garret Lear. Oath Keepers is not a "Christian Organization" tho if God blesses the ministry of those of us who are, we hope to see many more of them come to a knowledge of Jesus Christ. PRAY :)
