Kramerbooks's decision to begin selling the book early Friday came hours after the book's publisher announced that the book would publish four days early due to increased interest.

"Due to unprecedented demand, we are moving the on-sale date for all formats of 'Fire and Fury,' by Michael Wolff, to Friday, January 5, at 9 a.m. ET, from the current on-sale date of Tuesday, January 9," a spokesperson for publisher Henry Holt told CNN.

"Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President," the author added in a tweet.

Trump’s attorneys have also sent a cease-and-desist letter to publisher Henry Holt & Company, demanding they not publish the book and apologize to the president for false claims in the book.
