Okay, so those reported sales of O. J. Simpson’s If I Did It didn’t actually happen. From Galleycat:
The mystery surrounding Bookscan‘s report of 100 copies of OJ Simpson’s canceled “confession” IF I DID IT sold during the week ending December 3 has been solved. According to HarperCollins spokeswoman Erin Crum, those “sales” were in fact pre-orders that a single retail account had neglected to delete from their system.
The sales were as hypothetical as his confession, which means that–wait a minute. Oh my god. What if this is some kind of a conspiratorial cover-up?
This is the last item I’m going to post on this tiresome brouhaha.
(Unless something really interesting happens, and then I’m sure I won’t be able to help myself.)
