madeleine book sales

Post  Panda on Wed 23 May - 9:36


I just checked out Amazon to see how well the book was selling and already the Paper back is down from £7.99 to £3.86 and the £20 hardcover down
to £6.00. I remember RioRita (hasn't posted for a long time incidentally) used to get the weekly sales figures in the U.K. from soemwhere, was it the
Times?

Have you noticed there is no mention of it by the McCanns?









These are two of the reviews:-

1.0 out of 5 stars This book angered me
When Madeleine McCann disappeared in 2007, everyone hoped that she would soon be found and reunited with her family. Tragically, this has not yet happened and her disappearance remains a mystery. What has added to the story is the fact that Madeleine and her twin siblings were left alone in their apartment over a number of nights while their parents got together with...

Morning cass.......at £3.86 these Bookshops and Supermarket outlets won.t make much profit will they....Mills and Boon probably gives them a better
return.

What does the verb "to red" a book mean? Is she colouring it in? In fairness, the spelling and grammar would suggest that the author is at the colouring book stage.

In the three supermarkets close to my home, each has lots more copies of "Madeleine," on show than of any other paperback. I reckon that high number of books sold must, to some degree, be accounted for by the fact that supermarkets possibly bought in large numbers, thinking they'd sell like the proverbial hot cakes. However, the books don't appear to be flying off those shelves because there always seems to be the same number. I think the stores are going to be left with a lot of unsold books on their hands.

Sorry but the prices would have to be a lot lower for me to part with any money. Now if they would give ME 3.86 and 6.00 to take it off their hands I may consider it!!!!!

Me too! And I can think of a good use for them. The catflap in our back door is a bit high on the outside because of the step. At present, the cats have a few bricks to help, but those books would be a nice extra step if I painted them with a few layers of waterproofing glaze.

I must admit I'm intrigued to know how Kate managed to add a substantial epilogue. Mind you, some people never tire of talking about themselves! Is there anyone who has been brave enough to read the paperback to see firstly what the additional material is and secondly if the worst of the inappropriate remarks (page 129 and the others) have been removed.

Badboy, I'm usually quite tolerant of other people's spelling and grammar (my ex OH is dyslexic) but it does make me cross when people post such awful stuff supposedly for the enlightenment and education of others, and they can't even be ars*d to use a spellchecker. And then when they start calling the rest of us ignorant, trolls etc. when they can't even spell the word.

I agree Iris. I find it hard to understand why people continually post "Would of" instead of "Would have". Surely they read articles online or elsewhere and see that "Would of" would never been seen in a newspaper article. Also, the mis-use of "off" and "of" does my head in. Rant over. Sorry but had to get that off (not "of") my chest.

Stolen from a Wodehouse story: 'this book should not be taken up lightly but hurled against the wall with great force.'

I'm intrigued that after the great media fest we had a few weeks ago, the book simply sidled into the bookshops without a fanfare. The epilogue and the paperback weren't mentioned much at all. Ah well, Blacksmith did say it was the longest suicide note in history -

English is going downhill with the help of such literature as the DM. Bored of - I would of done - of is not 'have' or 'by' - drives me mad!

Nice one tigger

Isn't it possible that potential customers, seeing the same Book Jacket or cover would think it was the original? What I don't understand is why the
Epilogue isn't being sold with the new picture as Madeleine would look now. It makes much more sense because all these European Countries would
have customers on the look-out for the new Madeleine and more likely to see her somewhere. The McCanns would be inundated with news of sightings,
no more Posters, selling Holiday Packs etc Sorry Gerry and Kate, the original cover might show a prettier photo of Madeleine but you have missed a
golden opportunity to widen the search for Madeleine, but then , maybe that isn't your priority, searching for Madeleine, maybe it is making money now.

Unfortunately the Queen with the magic wand is busy elsewhere at mo trying to save her own a***e from the fire to be bothered about promoting a book, or a book with a few more pages, as can be witnessed by the lack of stories over the weekend. What was it someone once "its hard to write about a story when you are the story", or something like that.

Hi bill 156.....glad you said a 'story' that is exactly what it is. not a truthful account of events. The McCanns were in Sweden on T.V very recently
promoting this 'epilogue' and the McCanns must be very disappointed that it appears to have bombed after being on sale only 13 days. !!!!! I wonder
if Kate received another advance for the epilogue, it is only about 30 pages extra .
