    NEW YORK — Other candidates go on book tours. Donald Trump brings the book tour to him. The erstwhile Republican front-runner pooh-poohed surging Republican rivals Marco Rubio and Ben Carson to an overflow news conference, then signed books for legions of his fans — including a real housewife of New Jersey — all from his home turf of Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday.

    "Number one, baby," said one supporter. "Donald's the best!" yelled an adoring fan beside me as I pushed my way closer to Donald Trump at his book signing at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday. Trump was singing copies of his latest book, Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again, which was released today. A Fortune contingent went to check out the event -- along with hundreds of supporters, spectators and media who clamored together in the luxury building to catch a glimpse of The Donald. And, no, we didn't get the Fortune copy signed, sadly. "Look...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton initially obliged Tuesday when she was stopped by a man in Washington, D.C., who asked if she could autograph her new book, Hard Choices, but she was stunned by the mans brazen request when he asked her to make it out to Christopher Stevens. On Sept. 11, 2012, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were murdered by jihadists under Clintons watch when she served as secretary of state.

  • First Lady Requires Photo ID for Her Book Signings;

    The Obama administration has done its best to oppose states from instituting new, stricter voter ID laws, complaining that many minority voters lack photo identification. But those same folks it wants voting in November are apparently not welcome anywhere near the First Lady's book signings. Something tells me that the same media outlets comparing voter ID laws to the Jim Crow Laws, however, won't see any hint of hypocrisy here, if they even report the story at all.

    "Come on, Sarah." Once more, Sarah Palin came to Iowa. Once more, it was for a book signing. This time it was at the WalMart in Spirit Lake. Again, no questions allowed by media (local or national) and no opportunities for possible 2012 caucus-goers to get close and ask what's on their minds. Supporters -- like those standing in line today in Spirit Lake -- don't mind that. In fact, the people we saw were delighted to meet the former governor of Alaska. Palin, in an apparent great mood, joked with people in line, shook hands and even autographed one...

The church is housed in the old Compaq Center which used to be the home of the Houston Rockets basketball team. On any given Sunday 40,000 people pack the church to listen to Osteen spew his version of the gospel. With a following like that one would expect Osteen to earn a hefty paycheck from the church but not a single penny of the church's money goes to Osteen. All his money comes from his books.

    The Atlantic ^ | Wednesday, December 23, 2009 | Benjamin F. Carlson
    Excepting her bang-up performance at the Gridiron Dinner this month, Sarah Palin has an infamously fraught relationship with the media. On the one hand, frenzied coverage of her memoir ginned up sales. On the other hand, non-stop scrutiny of her clothing choices allegedly ruined a family vacation. There are costs to being constantly in the spotlight. Now she's taken some measures to control the message. Three Alaska bloggers who crossed Palin while she was governor have found themselves banned from attending her book signings. Jesse Gryphen, Dennis Zaki, and Shannyn Moore--plus an unknown fourth--are blacklisted at Palin events. Gryphen tells...

Palin struck a familiar pose, too, looking very much like the folksy yet fashionable presidential candidate her most avid fans hope to see in 2012. Not surprisingly, she didn't say much at least not out loud, for all the world to hear. In fact, when she started signing books, the folks at the...

She was surprised (she's a big Palin fan, but gets her news through me as English is not her first language) -- well there was of course a line of chairs and tents that was already very long.

Palin greets each fan with a quick 'Thank you, thank you' and grasps a hand if a fan offers, her smile barely budging. She rarely glances down at the stream of open books on the table top as she scribbles her loopy "SP" on each one. Barnes & Noble security is starting to bring the standby line inside...

He began the day in Lee County, came (late) to Tampa, arriving at about 12:15 p.m., and then went to the Villages, where he made his much hyped announcement that he had been teasing his listeners and viewers about in recent days. According to Orlando television station WOFL: He also said he plans...

Conservative media star Glenn Beck spent about 90 minutes signing copies of his latest bestseller, Arguing With Idiots, at the Books-A-Million store in Chasewood Plaza this evening. The stop was part of a two-day, seven-city swing through Florida, the kind of tour political candidates...
