Kim Kardashian may have a little over 41 million Instagram followers, but it sounds like they’re content to look at her selfies for free online: her book of selfies, ‘Selfish,’ hasn’t sold too many copies.
According to Nielson Book Scan, which follows book sales from various outlets, ‘Selfish’ has only sold about 32,000 copies. That’s less than 1% of Kim’s Instagram followers. It’s like the saying goes: why buy the milk when you can get the cow for free? LOL
Not only has the book been a flop in terms of sales: it didn’t get the best reviews, either. Imagine! On Amazon, ‘Selfish’ has 661 reviews (as of this writing) and the average is 2.3 out of 5 stars. Sixty-five percent of the reviewers gave it just a one star. OUCH.
Here are some of the things reviewers wrote:
A poor tree died for this.
I can recommend the audio version of this book. It lasts 37 seconds. The narrator basically says, “On this page, we have an idiot and her cleavage looking into a camera,” 500 times.
1. Take the money you were planning on buying this book with.
2. Look at it reaaaaal good.
3. Put it in an envelope.
4. Donate it to Nepal.
5. (optional) Go buy yourself some brain cells.
If I could give it 0 rating I would. This book seems like it was made with absolutely no thought, consideration, just for money! You can’t even see the pictures clearly because it’s cut right down the middle & because of the tiny hard book with thick pages it’s not easily bendable. Why did they make the book so tiny?! This was a WASTE of MY money! Don’t waste yours, this is garbage!
Can’t even see the pictures clearly? Really? I have to admit, I’ve always wondered about this. There seems to be an assumption that if someone has a big following online (on Instagram, twitter, etc), then that means they can actually sell things to their followers. I’m not sure that’s the case. Why buy a book of Kim’s selfies when she posts so many online that you can look at for free? ‘Fess up: did you buy Kim’s selfie book?
