Daggers, and Bulk Sales, for Romney's Book

Mitt Romney's "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness" debuted at #1 on the New York Times hardcover nonfiction bestseller list, but there's a caveat that's making some waves: the Times placed two daggers next to Romney's book. A dagger indicates that some booksellers received bulk orders.

Presumably, two daggers means more bulk sales.

The Atlantic contacted the publicity department of St. Martin's Press, which published Romney's book, seeking information on bulk orders by individuals or groups; St. Martin's has yet to respond with any detailed sales info, and I'll update this post if it does.

Conservative groups, it would seem, might be interested in obtaining copies.
