A Second Dose of Palin

So it seems to be becoming an annual trend--Sarah Palin has another book coming out this fall (causing me and my peeps to have to move a pub date of our own, but I'm not irritated, no, not at all heh).

HarperCollins announced the book's release yesterday, according to USA Today :

Sarah Palin's new book has a title, America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag, and a release date, Nov. 23, publisher HarperCollins announced Tuesday.

The Alaska ex-governor and former Republican vice presidential candidate, whose memoir Going Rogue has sold more than 2 million copies, has been working on a tribute to American values.

It will include "selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her," according to HarperCollins, along with "the nation's founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies."

The book is inspired not only by her "strong belief in the importance of family, faith, and patriotism," but by some of the people she met last year while promoting Going Rogue. Palin skipped major cities such as Seattle and Los Angeles, traditional stops on most author tours, and instead focused on smaller communities more receptive to her conservative message.

"The book will also include portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her deep love of country, her strong rootedness in faith, and her profound love and appreciation of family," the statement from HarperCollins reads.

HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis said Palin will likely tour for America By Heart, but added that details were still being arranged. The book will have a first printing of 1 million copies the initial run for Going Rogue was 1.5 million and a list price of $25.99.

I don't know about the rest of you, but this blogger would rather have the Palin coloring book than deal with another of her agendas.
