There is next to no interest in First Lady Jill Biden, judging by sales of her new book on Amazon. Her book, released in early April, is ranked #88 in the category of “Political Leader Biographies.”
The online bookseller does not indicate how many copies of the book have sold, but Mrs. Biden’s book has only received one review and been rated just twice. So, Little, Brown and Company executives probably do not plan on issuing a second printing.
A report by Politico pegged the actual number of sales for her book at a mere 250. The report cited the company, NPD BookScan, which tracks book sales for the number of sales. (An account is required by NPD.)
A biography of 19th-century French author, Alexis de Tocqueville, is ranked ten spots higher, #78, than the president’s wife. Ahead of that barn-burner biography is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s book, ranked #68, with 2,717 reviews. A biography of WW II-era President Harry Truman sits at #54 on the Amazon site, selling less than Kellyanne Conway’s book — ranked #52.
“Dr. Jill Biden has been described as President Joe Biden’s greatest political asset,” begins the book’s blurb. “Like many women of her generation, she holds her commitments as wife, mother and grandmother at the center of her life.” The book’s blurb continues on about her career and education. “She broke barriers as first lady as the first to hold a paying job outside the White House.”
“‘Jill’ is the story of this accomplished American woman,” the promo gushed.
The book reportedly details her family experiences after meeting and marrying the president and forming a hybrid family with his sons and their daughter.
Her book is described as a deeply reported biography of a highly public figure. Associated Press reports by Julie Pace and Darlene Superville, along with writer Evelyn M. Duffy, reveal some of the private sides of Jill Biden, according to the book’s blurb.
“We come to better understand her personality, which has held the Biden family together through tragedy and good fortune alike,” the promo text concluded.
The book does not include Mrs. Biden’s reaction to the selection of Kamala Harris to run on then-candidate Joe Biden’s presidential ticket, according to a report in The Western Journal.
“There are millions of people in the United States,” she asked, according to Fox News report. “Why do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?”
