Reporter Nick Confessore has been digging into how Donald Trump Jr.’s book became a #1 non-fiction bestseller an it appears to be exactly as I suggested in a previous post, that the Republican National Committee purchased copies in bulk to the tune f $94,800. Confessore has the documentation to prove it.
New FEC disclosures show a single large RNC payment of $94,800 to Books-a-Million in October, a few days before "Triggered" was released. An RNC spokesman confirmed that the expenditure was connected to their promotion of Don Trump Jr.'s book. pic.twitter.com/vsmmsgrYCp

Books-a-Million is selling the book at a discounted price of $23 so the $94,800 would have purchased more that 4,000 books.
