Sales for Trump books jump after election

NEW YORK (AP) — The impending presidency of Donald Trump is already helping his books sell.

Trump’s breakthrough best-seller from the 1980s, “The Art of the Deal,” and his campaign work “Great Again” were on Amazon.com’s “Movers & Shakers” list Wednesday of books making the biggest jumps on the best-seller list.

“The Art of the Deal” soared from No. 1,107 to No. 24 and “Great Again” from 5,340 to 172.

J.D. Vance’s “Hillbilly Elegy” also was attracting strong interest after Trump’s upset victory Tuesday over Hillary Clinton.

Vance’s memoir about his white working-class family in rural Ohio, a key part of Trump’s winning coalition, was No. 2 as of midday Wednesday.
