Unintentional word puzzle

Came across this quote from an Amazon employee yesterday that had me scratching my head for a while:

We sold more books today that didn’t sell at all yesterday than we sold today of all the books that did sell yesterday.

    This is my understanding of the quote:

    (no. of books sold today) – (no. of books left over yesterday) > (no. of books sold today) – (no. of books sold yesterday)

    cool phrase:
    here its my version in maths:

    A: books sold yestereday
    B: books not sold yesterday

    “Today we sold more of B than A”
