The New York Times is announcing today that Minnesota GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has signed a book contract with Sentinel--the same conservative imprint of the Penguin Group that published Mike Huckabee's memoir.

Her memoir, which she will apparently write with Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund, will be published this fall. This fall! Look out the window--it's practically fall already!  That would be writing at lightning-speed. But maybe they've already made a good start.

Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty's memoir, "Courage to Stand," carries a solid three out of five stars average on Amazon. Will readers like Bachmann's book better? Will she get more stars? Will book sales translate to votes, somehow? Stay tuned. Not only is fall almost here, but the presidential election is practically here, as well. And apparently there will be plenty for us not only to listen to and watch, but also to read.
