O.J. Simpson

O.J. In Demand

Though Barnes & Noble had previously stated that they would not be carrying O.J.Simpson‘s new “fictionalized” memoir, If I Did It, the book retailers are now saying that they will sell it in their stores.
But they won’t be promoting it, as if that’s supposed to make things better.
Barnes & Noble spokeswoman Mary Ellen Keating said: “We’ve been monitoring the pre-orders and customer requests and have concluded that enough customers have expressed interest in buying the book to warrant stocking it in our stores. We do not intend to promote the book but we will stock it in our stores because our customers are asking for it.”
For days Simpson’s book has been in the top 100 on Barnes & and at one point even topped the best-seller list. If I Did It has also entered the top 100 on
O.J. won’t be making any money off the book, though.
Over the summer, a federal bankruptcy judge awarded rights to the book to the family of victim Ronald Goldman to help satisfy a $38 million wrongful death judgment against Simpson.
If I Did It will be published September 13th by Beaufort Books on behalf of the Goldman family, which considers the book Simpson’s confession.
The family of Nicole Brown, the other victim, objects to its publishing.
