    Nightmares and Dreamscapes 1,500,000
    Rose Madder 1,750,000
    All the Green Mile paperbacks 2,000,000 each
    Desperation 1,750,000
    Regulators 1,250,000
    Packaged set of Desperation and Regulators 200,000
    Green Mile HC 75,000
    Bag of Bones 1,300,000
    Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon 1,250,000
    On Writing 200,000
    Black House 2,000,000
    From a Buick 8 1,750,000
    Revised Gunslinger 60,000
    Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon pop-up book 500,000
    'Salem's Lot Illustrated edition 25,000
    Colorado Kid paperback 1,000,000
    Cell 1,100,000
    Lisey's Story 1,250,000
    Duma Key 1,000,000
    Just After Sunset 900,000
    Under the Dome 950,000
    Blockade Billy 500,000
    Full Dark, No Stars 1,200,000

    And that's about it. If a title isn't listed, I don't have the number for it.

    Again, I want to emphasize that these are rough numbers of first printings of the trade editions I didn't include any of the books from the small publishers (Grant, CD, etc.) because those are fairly easily obtained.

    Hope this helps!

    I sure was wrong!

    bizzyradio only asked me for the numbers after Needful Things was published. I have some of the earlier ones if anyone's interested.

    My only differences are:

    The Stand (original) 70,000
    The Dead Zone 80,000
    Cujo 150,000
    Different Seasons 200,000
    Christine 250,000
    Pet Semetary 250,000
    Talisman 600,000
    Thinner 26,000
    Bachman Books 15,000
    It 1,000,000
    Misery 900,000
    The Dark Half 1,200,000
    Four Past Midnight 1,000,000

    I'd never seen the numbers for Rage or Insomnia before.

    It's possible the 25,000 number for The Bachman Books was the number of trade paperbacks done.
