Kim Kardashian has a new book in the works filled with nothing but selfies. (It is a book of nothing but photos of her.) The name of the new book is "Selfish," so at least she owns it. According to Yahoo News on Tuesday, the book has selfies that are racier than usual, and it will include some that had been sent only to her husband, Kanye West. Famous for almost constantly posting self-taken photos on social media, it seems that her quite famous posterior is visible free of charge with every click of the mouse. So, as the old saying goes, "Why would anyone buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?"

But, they will buy it. Love her or hate her, the fans ultimately gobble up any tidbits of "Kardashian Krumbs" that are offered to them. The latest cover of US Magazine has a story of Kim Kardashian’s supposed upcoming plastic surgery to lose weight, and the photo is very unflattering. Who knows when the photo was taken and published by the sometimes-questionable media outlet, but it shows a backside almost the size of Mrs. Doubtfire’s.

Entertainment Wise.com questions, “Can this woman flash anything more?” It is impossible to sort through any social media newstream without scrolling across one of this “selfie queen’s” often risqué photos, usually taken by herself. It seems a bit odd for someone to post this many selfies, especially someone with such an “unusual” figure.

The entire Kardashian family has a talent for making money without talent. The media follows their every move, reporting on the silliest of stories. “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” is one of the best examples of making money for doing absolutely nothing.

"Selfish" is available for pre-order on Amazon for $14.95, but it won't be out until April 17. While Kim K.’s good taste may be questionable, one thing that remains irrefutable is her business acumen. She is a financial genius. She has parlayed what is really a figure flaw into a money-making trademark. There is another old saying that describes people “laughing all the way to the bank.”
