Kate Gosselin New Book Flopping in Sales

Posted on April 30, 2010 by

So it turns out that Kate Gosselin fans like watching her on TV and reading about her on the Internet (THANK YOU FANS!), but not reading her books.

Since its April 13 release, “I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family” has sold just 10,084 copies, according to national book sales tracker Bookscan.

Jim Milliot, business and news director of book-industry magazine Publishers Weekly, tells UsMagazine.com that the numbers “nowhere near a blockbuster” and “not that impressive.”

This must be extra insulting as the reality TV Mom really hustled the book hard to anybody that would speak to her. Let’s also not forget that she has been a tabloid sweetheart for months and everybody has been talking about her. However they were obviously talking about her for the wrong reasons as not too many are willing to open their wallets.

We wonder if Jon Gosselin is happy or sad about this development. Happy perhaps because his ex-wife has failed at her writing career. Sad perhaps because that means less alimony for him and increasing the likelihood of him needing a real job.
