Exclusive: Britney Spears ACTUAL Hardcover Book Sales 414,000 — Not 1.1 Million Says Bookscan


Just wait:

According to BookScan/Circana, Britney Spears’ first week book sales are 414,000.

Simon & Schuster sent out an early press release yesterday saying they’d sold 1.1 million copies.

Not true. According to Circana, S&S’s numbers included pre-sales, ebooks, and audio books. They have no way of measuring those numbers.

But actual hardcover sales: 60% lower than the publisher said.

It’s still a huge number, but far from the press release. Circana counts 85% of all hardcovers sold.

“The Woman in Me” is currently number 2 on Amazon’s hardcover bestseller list and number 4 on Kindle.
