What do you think about the Knox book deal?

Amanda Knox and the $4 million book deal: Now that Knox has signed for a seven-figure advance for a book on her ordeal and the death of her British roommate in Perugia, Italy, in 2007, we thought we would ask again, via a poll, what people think about that.

Some people have criticized Knox for trying to cash in, while others note that her family and friends went into great debt to support her during her trial and time in prison.

Knox, 24, of West Seattle, was in Perugia as an exchange student when Kercher was stabbed to death. Knox and her former boyfriend were convicted of murder in the case, but the convictions were reversed late last year.

Knox spent four years in an Italian prison. She is now back in Seattle.
