Kim Kardashian’s Selfish book is not a flop despite reports the selfie book sales were a little lean. The book has sold about 125,000 copies not the 30,000 Bookscan number that is being reported. “The Bookscan number of 30K floating around is not inaccurate but it represents a very small segment of our sales overall, which are very strong in non-bookstore specialty retailers, and international sales, neither of which report to Bookscan,” Pam Sommers, Executive Director of Publicity at Rizzoli, told Us Weekly. “The book is, in fact, a significant success story as a benchmark of the phenomenon of self-portrait in the digital age.”
The book, originally a Valentine’s Day idea for Kanye West, originally cost $19.99, but will now run you $10 to 12.
