ABSTRACT
The article presents brief information about various books to be published. Senator-elect Barack Obama, who has watched his decade-old "Dreams From My Father," climb the nonfiction bestseller lists since his speech at the Democratic National Convention last summer, has signed a new contract with Random House's Crown and Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers divisions. Hylas Publishing has acquired the book rights to the widely trafficked sorryeverybody.com Web site, created by University of Southern California student James Zetlen as an online portal for Americans to express their disappointment in the results of the 2004 Presidential election.
