Bush's memoir to have print run of 1.5M copies
NEW YORK (AP) - Former President George W. Bush's memoir will
arrive next month with a huge first printing and an e-book with
multimedia extras. That's what Crown Publishers said in a statement
"Decision Points" will have a print run of 1.5 million copies,
the same number given six years ago for Bill Clinton's "My Life,"
which went on to sell more than 2 million copies, far greater than
for most presidential memoirs.
Crown, an imprint of Random House Inc., also announced that an
enhanced e-book edition will be available, featuring video
highlights of Bush's presidency, photographs not included in the
hardcover book and personal correspondence.
"Decision Points" comes out Nov. 9, a week after Election Day.
