Biographies of Potential First Ladies Released Exclusively on the Kindle
Amazon.com Inc. announced that Kindle customers will have an exclusive opportunity to download and read new biographies of potential first ladies Cindy McCain and Michelle Obama in advance of their print publications.
“Michelle Obama: Grace and Intelligence in a Time of Change,” by Elizabeth Lightfoot, was made available on the Kindle Wednesday. The print version is scheduled to be released Nov. 26 by The Lyons Press, an imprint of The Globe Pequot Press.
“Cindy McCain: Elegance, Good Will and Hope for a New America,” by Alicia Colon, will be available on the Kindle Monday. However, this book will only go to print if Sen. John McCain wins the presidential election. If McCain wins, the print version of the Cindy McCain biography also will be released Nov. 26 by The Lyons Press.
“We’re very excited to be able to deliver to readers the first biographies of the candidates’ wives,” says Scott Watrous, president and publisher of The Globe Pequot Press. “Kindle is driving a brand-new type of reading experience, and we’re pleased to be a part of it by offering our content to Kindle readers before the print version comes out.”
