FILE - This June 16, 2014 file photo shows former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reacting to a customer at a signing for her new book "Hard Choices," at Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, Mass.  Clinton’s “Hard Choices” sold well enough during its first week to make it among the year’s most popular nonfiction books. But its opening was also far slower than that for her previous memoir, "Living History." According to Simon & Schuster, "Hard Choices" has sold more than 100,000 copies since coming out June 10. By comparison, first week sales in 2003 for “Living History” were around 600,000 copies. (AP Photo/Steven Senne, File)
