Kate Gosselin might still be hot in the tabloids, but it's looking like folks might not want to read a whole book about her these days.
Gosselin's book, I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family, has sold only 10,084 copies since its April 13 release (according to national book sales tracker Bookscan).
While the non-fiction title debuted at No. 11 on the New York Times' non-fiction bestseller list, by Thursday (April 29) afternoon, its Amazon.com sales rank was No. 1,030 -- and its list price has dropped from $22.99 to $12.41.
By comparison, Gosselin's first two books, Multiple Blessings and Eight Little Faces, hit number five on the New York Times' list. Multiple Blessings sold 523,000 copies in 2009.
Is this the first sign that the tabloid-topping mom is finally starting to slip into obscurity?
Maybe she should write a book about that.
