Gordon Brown's book a flop as Blair prepares for memoir launch
While booksellers in Britain are preparing for a run on the memoirs of former prime minister Tony Blair, his successor, Gordon Brown, has been less fortunate dpa reported
Reports said Thursday that just 32 copies of Brown's book, The Change We Choose, had been sold since April. The compilation of Brown's speeches between 2007 and 2009 is ranked number 262,956 on the bestseller list of Amazon, the online bookseller.
The disappointing sales figures have led bookshops to slash the cover price from 20 pounds (31 dollars) to just 5.97, the Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.
Blair's eagerly anticipated autobiography, A Journey, is due to be published early next month. Large crowds and high security are expected for signing sessions accompanying the launch.
