NEW YORK (AP) - Sheryl Sandberg has the ear, and the eyes, of the country's book buyers.

Sandberg's "Lean In" sold 140,000 copies its first week of publication and has gone back to press seven times for additional printings, publisher Alfred A. Knopf announced Wednesday. It has been at No. 1 on Amazon.com's best seller list since coming out March 11 and has also placed high on lists for Barnes & Noble and other sellers.

Sandberg also appears to be helping sales of other books. Since her recent praise of "Now, Discover Your Strength," by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton, the hardcover edition of the 12-year-old book has moved into the top 300 on Amazon.
