Reality star Kim Kardashian loves taking pictures of herself so much that she actually put together a book of her personal snaps called “Selfish”. The book was a complete and total flop. Go figure.
The book was released to much fanfare and social media promotion in May, and as of mid-July Kardashian was still promoting the book via Instagram posts.
But reps for Nielsen Bookscan told Radar exclusively that so far, it has only sold 32,000 copies. That represents just 0.8% of Kardashian’s Instagram fans. (*Nielsen BookScan’s U.S. Consumer Market Panel currently covers approximately 85% of the print book market and continues to grow.)
What’s more, the book is a critical flop online. Sitting at 1,607 in books, it’s ranked only 2.5 stars after 661 customer reviews. And those reviews have been scathing.
Are you surprised that her hordes of fans didn’t show up in full force to buy this book? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.
