And some sites have been mocking its initial small sales, and say that it has been pushed onto newsagents who didn't actually order it.
This seems a very surprising result for a political book (and surely it would count as that) with no fresh content. Sales of over 10,000 for any political book in Australia seem fairly rare - according to this list, there were three that sold over 10,000 last year, and one of those was only 12,000.
Given the previous articles about how slowly it initially sold, I strongly suspect something funny is going on here. Has the IPA (with staffer Bolt Jnr) snapped up a large number to send out for free if memberships are renewed? Did Gina Rinehart have a particularly large gap on her library shelves that she decided to fill up just to make it look like reads a lot? That's two possible theories that immediately spring to mind.
I await some commentary to appear on these implausible sounding sales figure to appear in the media soon.
