Dugard's memoir tops Amazon.com's best-seller list

Jaycee Dugard’s memoir about her 18 years of captivity at the hands of Phillip and Nancy Garrido sits atop Amazon.com’s best-seller list and sold 175,000 copies Tuesday, the first day it went on sale.

“A Stolen Life” set a company record for one-day e-book sales at 100,000 downloads, which were included in Tuesday’s total sales, according to Simon & Schuster. It said 425,000 copies have been printed.

"Clearly, the book has touched a nerve. The millions of people who read the excerpt in People magazine and watched Jaycee Dugard's interview with Diane Sawyer want to hear more of her voice, on the page, and the comments we're seeing online indicate that readers are finding inspiration in Jaycee Dugard's strength and resilience," the publisher said. Dugard gave birth to two children during her captivity in California.
