Books hitting the shelves in October

Here's Publisher's Weekly list of October releases... just in case you're just beside yourself waiting.

What I do find interesting about these in the initial copy orders. Sort of a finger in the wind for anticipated sales. High profile notables in the group coming out this month?

Clarence Thomas: My Grandfather's Son: A Memoir 250,000 copies

Ann Coulter: If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans 600,000 copies. Boy,
that's gotta hurt the liberal progressives...

Rosie O'Donnell: Celebrity Detox (The Fame Game) 400,000 copies. Word on the street is that only about 40-60K of them have sold.

Jimmy Carter: Beyond the White House: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope 350,000 I'll believe it when I see it.

Chris Matthews: Life's a Campaign: What Politics Has Taught Me About Friendship, Rivalry, Reputation, and Success no copies mentioned... is this a print per order book because of a lack of interest??? LOL

If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer (The Ron Goldman Foundation for Justice Authorized
Version) w/commentary added by Goldman family. Only 150,000 copies

Stephen Colbert: * I Am America (And So Can You!) 1.4 million copies. Really???? Okay

Paul Krugman: The Conscience of a Liberal 150,000 copies. Looks a little sad next to la femme Coulter...

Bill O'Reilly: Kids Are Americans, Too 400,000 copies

Valeria Plame Wilson: Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House 400,000 copies

Danielle Steele: Amazing Grace 800,000 copies. Goes to show you that fantasy still trumps reality any day in America
