Print media is a tough sell these days, no matter who you are. But when it comes to coffee table-style books — especially those filled with pictures of beautiful women — well, you’d expect sales to be fairly decent.
Such speculation surrounded Kim Kardashian’s 2015 release of Selfish, the book which showcases an array of selfies from the Instagram queen. However, according to Radar, the selfie book has only sold 32,000 copies. Roughly 14,000 were sold the first week, with only 18,000 more copies having been sold since then.
As they go on to point out, Kim has around 41 million followers on Instagram. Going by these sales numbers, that means only 0.08% of those followers actually bought a copy of Selfish.
