NEW YORK, NY – April 18, 2018 – Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the world’s largest retail bookseller, today announced that James Comey’s A Higher Loyalty is the top-seller in stores nationwide and online at BN.com just one day after the book’s release.
“A Higher Loyalty was an instant bestseller before it ever arrived in our stores,” said Liz Harwell, Senior Director of Merchandising, Trade Books at Barnes & Noble. “Now that it’s here it is flying off the shelves. It’s one of the best pre-publication rollouts we’ve seen in many years, due to all of the publicity surrounding the book ahead of its publication yesterday.”
Mr. Comey’s appearance this evening at Barnes & Noble Union Square in New York City has already been sold out.
