A Bad Week For Mrs Blair

Considering all the publicity the rounds of TV studios, serialization on the BBC, more press coverage than the China earthquake and goodness knows what else we hear that Cherie Blair’s memoirs have sold 3,877 this week. Not very good really! Mind you it’s still better than Lord (?) Levy who managed 603. Now considering this is the first week, off the back of everything, that really is pretty awful for both of them. Given the level of discount on Mrs. Blair’s book her publisher got back something around £30,000 to £35,000, even if you add that to the serialization rights it hasn’t made much of a dent in her advance.

Following Mrs. Blair’s appearance on the BBC's One Show tonight I can’t see it suddenly flying off the shelves. Incidentally on the One Show she admitted that people told her that she was much more beautiful in the flesh than in photographs.
