I preordered and have received my copy. I consider it my little contribution to her future presidential run.

Nonfiction book?

I kan haz a cheezburger?

If not for what are deemed to be “conservative” authors, the book publishing industry would be in desperate straits.

Both in the fiction and nonfiction segments.

Somebody outside the Island of Manhattan is obviously buying all those books. When are the New York elites going to find out what it is that inspires the people of “flyover country”?

Thanks, Kristinn. I'm looking forward to books from the other potential GOP presidential nominee aspirants. I'm sure that those books will sell well too.

I’m so glad McCain lost, Sarah’s smoking the country. The media is in a tizzy, the November election was a bomb for libs, and now congress is fighting Obama. It’s falling apart faster than expected. The media can’t ignore it too much longer. Socialism is failing BIG TIME! LOL! There is good news out there. If healthtakeover bill passes, it will even be worse. Our country is WIDE AWAKE and ready at a moment’s notice for action.

We pre-ordered too. That’s ok, her book is out there, we boosted pre-publishing sales. I’ll get it when it gets here.

didn't get mine - maybe ‘cause I'm rural - really rural. We usually get stuff later...

Oh, well, it's just as well. I know I won't get a thing done once I get it until I finish it...

I just finished it. 95% of it is a totally enjoyable read giving me even more respect for the Governor. 5% could have been left out. But over-all, a home run.
