Kim Kardashian's Selfish book flops

KIM Kardashian may be the second-most followed celebrity on Instagram, but that doesn't mean people want to pay for her selfies in book form.

Released in May, the reality star's photo book Selfish has flopped - with Radar reporting only 32,000 copies have sold in three months.

The book is a collection of Kim's selfie photography, featuring some never-before-seen images.

"Widely regarded as a trailblazer of the "selfie movement" - a modern-day self-portrait of the digital age - Kim has mastered the art of taking flattering and highly personal photos of oneself," reads the description of the book on Amazon.The news may come as a shock to Kim, as prior to the official release of Selfish, 500 limited edition copies for sale on Gilt.com sold out in one minute.

While it's managed to top the Amazon charts in the niche category of celebrity photography, it's only ranked at 786 in books overall.

Amazon reviews of the book are largely negative, with 69 per cent in the one star category.

One reviewer remarked, "A poor tree died for this", while another asked, "When did toilet paper get so expensive?"

A rare five-star review said, "At first I figured she used a ghostwriter like a lot of celebrities, but I was happily surprised that she took pictures for each page to prove she wrote it!"
