Now the company's publisher and co-owner, Kent Sturgis, says 40,000 paperback editions are being printed for shipment on Tuesday.

The book, "Sarah: How a Hockey Mom Turned Alaska's Political Establishment Upside Down" by Kaylene Johnson, been as high as seventh on's best-seller list, which is updated hourly. At midday Sunday it was number 13.
