Sales surge for Pippa Middleton's book
Nov 22, 2012, 16:02 GMT
Sales of Pippa Middleton's book have increased by 48 per cent this week.
The brunette beauty's party planning book 'Celebrate' - which aims to teach people how to throw parties for various occasions all year round - had recently come under fire after it was reduced from Â£25 to Â£12 on online shopping website Amazon, but sales have risen from 2,288 copies to 3,380 this week, according to The Bookseller.
A spokesman told the London Evening Standard: 'It's normal to see sales of non-fiction hardback books going up around this time of year. Especially humour or books by celebrities.'
While the tome tends to be housed in the Food and Drink sections of bookshops, critics believe it could be a great stocking filler due to its comical aspect.
Earlier this month, Pippa's 416-page book - which was released on October 25 - had fallen to 189th on the Amazon bestseller list and it was being outsold by 'The Highway Code' and a Tom Daley calendar.
The tome is described on the website as a 'fully illustrated and beautifully designed book packed with recipes, crafts and inspirational ideas'.
Several readers have slammed some of Pippa's ideas in the book, which include suggesting to play pass the parcel - a traditional party game - to entertain children and her tome also states: 'Turkeys are perfect for feeding larger gathering'.
