Kim Kardashian’s newest book came out yesterday and boy it is something.
The book is what you expect: A book full of Ms. Kardashian-West personal and umm revealing (to put it mildly) pictures.
The book by the numbers: 445 pages, 300 total selfies including 115 cleavage shots, 23 butt shots, 10 nude selfies, one baby bump shot, and one selfie with an elephant. There are also four selfies of the giant diamond engagement ring (more than a million dollars) given to her by her now husband Kanye West. One person who was absent? Former ex-husband Kris Humphries who is not mentioned in the book. Don’t want to bring up any hard memories Kim.
One thing I noticed is that she makes the rather interesting choice of including 39 pages of risqué photos from the now infamous iCloud photo hacking leak, all of which make her buzzed-about Paper magazine spread from last year seem pretty tame. It was pretty bold of her to include all of her iCloud photo hacking leak in the book.
There are also celebrities who appear in the book. They include: Paris Hilton, Kimora Lee Simmons, Ciara, Vera Wang, Serena Williams, Kelly Osbourne, Snookie, Selena Gomez, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Rowland, Karl Lagerfeld, Carine Roitfeld, Riccardo Tisci, Jennifer Lopez, Donatella Versace, Madonna, Beyoncé, Solange, Ellen DeGeneres, and Valentino, all referred to by their first name only.
So why buy this book? Well if you worship Kim Kardashian then this is the book for you! If not well keep your money. Kim is just an example on how sex sells in this country. Although it won’t replace War and Peace as the greatest book of all time, it will make a lot of money.
