Jon and Kate Plus 8 Books

Do You Plan to Buy Jon and Kate's Books?

The other night on Jon and Kate Plus 8, the Gosselins mentioned that Kate has a second book, Eight Little Faces: A Mom's Journey ($11) out. This is in addition to the couple's earlier book, Multiple Blessings: Surviving to Thriving with Twins and Sextuplets ($14). A lot of lilsugar readers are fans of the family's television show, but have you (or do you also plan) on picking up their texts?

i hate how people insist that jon & kate are just in it for the spotlight...if you had 8 kids, wouldn't you do everything in your power to make enough money to support them?i mean if i had 8 kids i would whore myself out too! you may not like that they get free products, but they are providing for their children. the videos, the books, & the free trips are just a few of the things that they need to do in order to make enough money to put 8 kids through college. keep doing what you're doing!!

No, I'm not paying Jon & Kate to bring up their children. No one paid my parents to support *me*. Luckily we have these things called libraries. Someone on a Jon & Kate site reminded us that these existed, and I wasn't in a hurry - so I got in the queue - I was #35, but it went fast. It was a fast read too. If the library has the other book, i'll read it. But there's a $60 book with theses about Grey's Anatomy that I'd rather they get.

No--I don't want to help exploit these children any more than they already have been exploited. They deserve to live normal childhoods without always being made into a product.

I havent' read them, but I'd consider reading them. I enjoy the show, and I'd love to hear more about the beginnings, life before the sextuplets, and I'd give it a shot. I don't understand the Kate-hate. Why even read these posts if you hate the show so much? There are reality shows I hate, and I avoid them. that's all. No reason to get all worked up, imo.

How come the only no option is "I don't have time to read"? I love to read. DO it whenever I can, but I could never be bored enough to pick up their books.

There definitely should have been another "no" option. I have time to read, but agree that there are other things I prefer to read. I enjoy the show, but I don't need to read the books.

Other. I just borrowed and read Multiple Blessings from my SIL. I did enjoy it but i can't bring myself to watch the show anymore, Kate is just so nasty, she is always screaming and she is such a b*tch to Jon.

No- because they sicken me.

I also have plenty of time to read, as a matter of fact I read every day, but I won't be getting this book because I have no interest in this family at all.

What is with the choices? Where isn't there just a plain "no" selection? I have plenty of time to read, but I cannot stand Kate and her constant ideas to commodify her kids. I used to love this show, and I still think the kids are sweethearts, but Kate seems to be on a quest to find new ways to make a sale.

i love the gosslin family. but soemtimes i get annoyed with the way the older girls cry. i also get sick of kate yelling all the time. i read the book and overall, they are good people. just my opinion!

AMEN, luckyme! as someone from their original hometown, i'm annoyed with the hoopla. and their trick-or-treating with a list of items that they needed. or full page newspaper ad looking for handouts.

other. i like their show just fine, but there are just way too many other, better books out there.

I don't care for them, but I have plenty of time to read.

I am not buying the book, but not because I don't have time to read. In fact, I have tons of time during my commute to and from work to read, but I won't be reading their book. I love Jon and Kate, but I think I get enough from the show.

I voted other as well. I would have voted "no - because I don't want to feed their cash cow any more than it has already been fed."

I checked out Multiple Blessings from the library and read it. I am not sure if I will read the other one. The book I read did give me more insight into what they went through before the 6 were born.

I chose other because I definitely have time to read, I am just not sure this is a book that would interest me.

i voted no because i will not be buying the book...not because "i don't have time to read". this book is just not for me, i am the mother of one, so i don't think i will relate.
