Obama's Book Buzz
Apparently Barack Obama's lastest book, The Audacity of Hope, was a surprise bestseller. It shot to the number one spot on the New York Times bestselling nonfiction list ahead of John Grisham's latest nonfiction titled Innocent Man. Obama reportedly turned up at a book signing event at a book store in Arizona and signed more that 1,400 books. The buzz is that this book by a politician has done so well and it is not even a tell-all memoir. In fact, we discussed his memoir, where he writes about his childhood years in Hawaii through to his first visit to Africa, many many months ago in this book club.
