This article reports on recent developments related to books publishing and trade. Singer Gloria Estefan is planning to a book for children. The book, which is yet to be titled, will be published in English and Spanish editions in November 2005, and the singer will write and record a song based on the story about her pet bulldog, Noelle. The article further reports that former the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency director George Tenet, who was in charge of the much-criticized agency during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, will have his memoirs published by Random House Inc.
