Snooki’s book, A Shore Thing, hasn’t ended up being so for her publishers, at least when it comes to dollars and cents. Though our fave pint-sized guidette did a slew of promotion for the book, from TV interviews to book signinsg, her novel hasn’t sold as well as anyone would have liked.
With four weeks on the shelves, the book has only managed to sell 8,998 copies.
Ouch! That’s bad, considering that the Kardashians were able to hock their autobiography for the same price and have sold 109,500 copies since November.
Still, Snook’s poised to do better than her costar The Situation. His book has been on the shelves since the beginning of November and he’s only sold 12,000 copies. Plus, at least Snooks can say she’s a New York Times best-selling author. Maybe next time it would be more profitable if you write an actually autobiography instead of masking it as a novel. Well, more profitable for your publishers anyway.
Take heed, Jwoww. When your book comes out next month, these are the numbers you’ll most likely be pulling in.
