By Christopher Rocchio, 05/03/2010 

Kate Gosselin's latest book apparently has a long way to go before it's a bestseller.

The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 and Dancing with the Stars celebrity participant's latest book -- "I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family" -- has sold only 10,084 copies since it was released on April 13, according to national book sales tracker Bookscan, Us Weekly reported Friday.

Publishers Weekly business and news director Jim Milliot told Us that sales figures for the book are "nowhere near a blockbuster" and "not that impressive."

In addition, he said that since books generally enjoy higher sales numbers "in the first month or two of publication," Gosselin could have "a very tough time getting to 50,000, let alone 100,000."

"I think it will be  a disappointment in the end," he told Us.

Gosselin's two previous books -- "Multiple Blessings" and "Eight Little Faces" -- both reached as high as No. 5 on the New York Times bestseller list, with "Multiple Blessings" selling 523,000 copies last year.
