Want Trump book ‘Fire and Fury’? Boca/Delray stores, libraries have copies — and holds


BOCA RATON — Good luck buying or borrowing a copy of the sought-after book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, in Delray Beach or Boca Raton.

While local bookstores and libraries are expecting to soon get copies of the best-seller — an explosive tell-all about President Donald Trump and his fitness for office — they have a long list of holds and reservations. 

Boca Raton’s public libraries, one on Spanish River Boulevard and the other downtown on Northwest Second Avenue, have seen “unprecedented demand” for the book, the library wrote on its Facebook page. Hardcover, CD and audio book copies already are reserved at the libraries, according to their website.

In Delray Beach, the library is expecting to receive 30 copies of the book, but has been fielding several calls about borrowing copies as soon as they arrive, said the library’s assistant director, Mykal Banta. The Delray Beach Public Library, on Atlantic Avenue at Southwest First Avenue, won’t allow holds on the book until they receive copies.

Those interested in reserving copies of the book can call the libraries or visit their websites.

The only bookstore in southern Palm Beach County that will carry the popular book is the Barnes and Noble at University Commons, on Glades Road just east on Interstate 95. The store will carry the book, but hasn’t received copies as of Monday, a store manager said.

There’s also a long list of reservations for copies once they arrive.

The book’s author, journalist Michael Wolff, questioned the 45th president’s fitness for office, claiming his own staff questions his competence. The explosive book has made waves in the media since it was released Friday, one day after an attorney for the president sent a cease and desist order to Wolff and the book’s publisher.

Trump administration officials have rallied to the president's defense, with chief policy adviser Stephen Miller saying on national television that the book "is so contrary to reality" and calling it "trash."
