NEW YORK (AP) — Sales for Hillary Rodham Clinton's new book, titled "Hard Choices," has dropped sharply in its second week of publication -- but the memoir remains the country's most popular adult nonfiction book.

According to Nielsen BookScan numbers released Wednesday, "Hard Choices" sold just over 48,000 copies last week, compared to around 85,000 the previous week. The figures do not include e-book sales.

Publisher Simon & Schuster, which had announced that total first-week sales exceeded 100,000 copies, declined Wednesday to offer any numbers on the second week.

Simon & Schuster issued a statement Tuesday saying that "Hard Choices" was placing high on best-seller lists around the world, although the publisher offered few specific numbers.

"Hard Choices" is seen by many as a platform for a possible 2016 presidential run.
