NEW YORK (AP) -

First week sales for Bill O'Reilly's latest book were enviable for virtually any author who isn't Bill O'Reilly.
  
NPD BookScan reported Wednesday that "Killing England" sold 65,000 copies in hardcover.
  
According to BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of the print market, last year's "Killing the Rising Sun" opened with sales of 145,000 copies. O'Reilly has been one of the most popular nonfiction authors for years, but "Killing England" is his first major release since being forced out from Fox News amid multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
  
While initial sales have been slower, O'Reilly's book has gained momentum. It jumped into the top 5 on Amazon.com on publication day, Sept. 19, and was No. 1 for much of Wednesday. "Killing England" was in the top 5 on Barnes & Noble.com.
