Hillary Clinton is in Seattle to sign copies of her new book, "Hard Choices."

Supporters lined up at University Book Store early this morning to guarantee a spot at her book signing at 5 p.m. today.

Clinton's "Hard Choices" sold more than 100,000 copies during its opening week, its publisher told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

As of Wednesday afternoon, "Hard Choices" was No. 4 on the best-seller lists for both Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. Though its debut was also far slower than that for her previous memoir, "Living History," which sold around 600,000 copies during its first week.

University Book Store ordered 1,200 copies and sold out around 6 p.m.

Lotus Zheng arrived at 11am Tuesday to secure her place first in line. 

"I moved from China to vote for her," Zheng said.

Zheng is now a US citizen and credits Clinton for giving her the motivation to earn it. She calls the Clinton book signing a dream come true, and planned what she would say.

"I moved from China to vote for you and you will be the best President in US history," she smiled.
