When is a Kim Kardashian selfie book NOT the strangest piece of book news in a given week?

When Penguin Publishing releasing a special Charlie and the Chocolate Factory cover in honor of that book's 50th anniversary... and it looks like this:

Meant to evoke spoiled character Veruca Salt, the photo is drawing criticism across the Internet for seemingly being at odds with the story’s tone and plot.

Kate Gosselin headlined the author byline on the reality TV mom's book Multiple Blessings, but Beth Carson says she in fact wrote it. Every single word.

Carson, Gosselin's former close friend, admits it was Kate’s story - it's her life with her sextuplets, of course - but insists she did 100 percent of the writing.

For a year. Only to watch Kate turn around and take the credit.

  • MULTIPLE BLES8INGS
  • Kate Gosselin Can't Look

“Kate and I would sit around feeding our babies, and Kate would talk. I would take notes and made it into a book,” Carson told Radar of the cleverly-titled MULTIPLE BLES8INGS.

Because they have 8 kids! Jon & Kate Plus 8! GENIUS!

"I wrote the entire thing. Kate didn’t write one word of the book. I wanted to take nothing away from the fact that it was her story, but I put a lot of work into it.”

Which was fine, until it was time to promote the book, and Kate shunned her.

“That was sort of the last straw, it was a smack in the face,” said Carson, who says she pratially blames TV audiences for creating this monster.

Still ... the woman was the absolute worst for effing her over so hard.

At the time, the Kim Kardashian sex tape made perfect sense.

Back then, where else could you see Kim Kardashian nude? What did you really know about this large-breasted brunette? Getting rammed by Ray J on camera was a logical big first step into the celebrity gossip world.

But E! News now confirms that Rizzoli imprint Universe will come out with a book titled “Selfish” in April 2015 that will sell for $19.95 and be 352 pages worth of Kim Kardadshian selfies.

Kim Kardashian Selfies Book

These leaves us with a number of questions:

For those parents out there struggling to find the best ways of talking to kids about the Second Amendment, boy do we have the perfect children's book for you.

My Parents Open Carry was written by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew, the co-founders of Michigan Open Carry who feel this issue can't be discussed early enough:

My Parents Open Carry Book

Brian and Nathan decided to pen a book on packing heat in public because, well, they "looked for pro-gun children's books and couldn't find any."

Given the countless number of children killed or injured by firearms each year, one can understand why. The authors feel this is an unfair statement, however.

The synopsis for My Parents Open Carry is as follows:

"Come join 13-year-old Brenna Strong along with her mom, Bea, and her dad, Richard, as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together."

What's not so typical about this family, the book educationally points out, "is that Brenna's parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense."

Former Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is out of prison and off the air, but she's still got a lot of her story to tell, and is doing it with an explosive new book.

Amber's tell all Never Too Late opens up about her rise to fame and fall from grace, her stint in an Indiana prison and her life since her release.

Amber Portwood Book Cover

The book will be released August 26, and Portwood told Radar she chose a selfie for the cover because it was symbolic of all she'd been through:

“I wanted to incorporate a selfie onto the Never Too Late book cover because I thought it was symbolic of the journey I had to take when writing the book.”

“In writing this book I had to step back and really take a look at my actions and life both before and after my jail time,” the 24-year-old added.

Also, “the selfie has become so mainstream that everyone can relate to it and my story and journey is one that a lot of people can relate to."

Amber Portwood, Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Farrah Abraham were the original four stars of Teen Mom. All have had their issues since.

No one can quite top Amber's problems with domestic violence, drugs, rehab, and hard core state prison while starring on the hit MTV show, however.

It might seem hard to believe, but Kate Gosselin has just hit a new low.

A new book claims Gosselin had kids so she could become famous, and an excerpt from the tell-all that reveals Kate's attempts to pawn her kids off on the state seems to only corroborate that.

  • Kate Gosselin Pissed
  • Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World Cover

Author and outspoken Gosselin critic Robert Hoffman has said that his book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, would expose Kate as a bully, scam artist, and abusive mom.

It now seems he's made good on that promise:

The book includes a letter written by Gosselin in 2005 as part of her effort to receive free childcare from the state of Pennsylvania. One alarming passage reads:

Kate Gosselin manipulated her fertility treatments to get pregnant with sextuplets and is a greedy monster who abuses kids and pets, a new book claims.

Robert Hoffman's newly re-released Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World makes so many bombshell allegations, we don't even know where to start.

Probably the biggest is that spanked her kids so hard that she begged God to help her stop, while going to town on the family dogs in a similar manner.

Oh, and she supposedly fell under the spell of bodyguard Steve Neild to the point that she him named trustee of her estate to hide money from husband Jon.

  • Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World Cover

Hoffman, who began tracking every move of the Gosselins in the summer of 2009 as a reporter for US Magazine, decided to expose her for what she is.

At least according to him. Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World is the documentation of what he calls the "Gosselin house of horrors" behind the facade.

The tome has been at the center of a huge lawsuit, which she dropped last year after she successfully kept the scandalous book from being published.

But now, with Gosselin's Kate Plus 8: Sextuplets Turn 10 special making news, Hoffman is re-releasing it, because she's a bully and her kids are worse off.

O.J. Simpson's longtime associate and former manager Norman Pardo says the disgraced NFL star got a raw deal, particularly involving If I Did It.

He spoke out again Tuesday, on the 20th anniversary of Simpson's infamous arrest for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

Pardo claims O.J. didn't write the controversial book If I Did It, the 2006 tome which explores how Simpson would've hypothetically probably killed people.

If he did it, that is. If.

  • OJ Simpson: IF I DID IT
  • OJ Book Cover

Personally, we feel that this alternate title and cover (above right) would have been more appropriate under the circumstances, but alas, we digress.

According to Pardo, Simpson agreed to claim authorship of If I Did It after being promised a $600,000 payout by NewsCorp and its subsidiary ReganBooks.

"I remember when that book was coming out. O.J. called me. He said, 'Here's the deal,' because it was in the news that he was going to do an interview."

"I said, 'O.J., don't do it, it's stupid.' He said, 'Hey, they offered me $600,000 not to dispute that I [wrote] the book.' He said, 'That's cash.'"

It's here. After months of breathless anticipation, we finally have our first preview of Celebrity Sex Tape: In the Making the erotic novel "written" by Farrah Abraham, and it's ...

... every bit as awkward and inane as we had hoped!

Sure, Farrah hasn't read her own book, but that doesn't mean the rest of us can't enjoy the bizarre super sexually-charged drivel churned out by her seemingly drunk ghostwriter:

Kim Kardashian's Sex Tape Sort of Sucked!

It wasn't as titillating as I thought it would be with someone as attractive as Kim. If I ever did a sex tape, I'd want better quality footage for sure.

It wasn't as titillating as I thought it would be with someone as attractive as Kim. If I ever did a sex tape, I'd want better quality...

According to early reports from those who have read the entire book (poor SOBs), Farrah attempts to arouse the reader and establish herself as some kind of sex goddess.

At the same time, she casts herself as the victim and condemning the porn industry - a total contradiction, yet not at all shocking given the source.

Not surprisingly, she doesn't quite pull it off and the book (the first installment in a planned trilogy) ends up being more confusing than stimulating.

Check out the gallery above for some highlights from Farrah's literary debut. WARNING: the phrases "sex warrior" and "swimming with semen" are used in an entirely non-joking fashion.
