CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Amazon puts "Going Rogue" in its top 20 but says Sarah Palin's 432-page memoir is slipping at the moment: "17. Ranking has gone down in the past 24 hours 109 days in the top 100." 109 days in the top 20? That seems a bit of a stretch because HarperCollins published the book on Nov. 17, 2009, not yet even 60 days ago. Palin is still No. 1 on The New York Times list of bestsellers, the same spot she holds in Cincinnati at the independent Joseph-Beth booksellers store she visited on her author's tour in December. Both lists put the publication date of "Going Rouge" in November 2009 -- which means she hasn't been on either's bestseller list for as long as Amazon.com.
Barnes & Noble's online list of bestsellers put Palin at 36th, but the company revises its list hourly and that could change. Borders ranks her at 48th. It, too, said Palin's book was published on Nov. 17.
