Bob Woodward's upcoming book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” won’t be released until September 11, but it’s already No. 13 on The Washington Post’s best-seller list, based on advance sales.

Speaking of presidents, “The President Is Missing,” by Bill Clinton and James Patterson, has now sold more than 1 million copies in all formats, according to the novel’s co-publishes, Knopf and Little, Brown.

And then there's “The Briefing,” by former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. Given the massive media attention it received, this insider account of “politics, the press, and the president” got off to a surprisingly slow start on July 24, and hardback sales dropped by 50 percent during its second week.
