Book publishers are lining up for the chance to publish Sarah Palin's campaign memoir. But is she worth the price? Would you buy it?

No, I wouldn't buy her book. Palin is a flash in the pan who is intent upon holding onto the spotlight for as long as she possibly can. She has not accomplished anything in her short time in public office that rates a book...unless you count running for the second highest office in the nation and your ticket losing. What lessons can be learned from reading about her contributions to the campaign? No good ones that I can think of.

I won't buy it, no. And her books are worth whatever the public is willing to pay for them, when you give people money, you can't complain about them being rich. I will probably glance through it when I see it in the bookstore to see if she writes the same way she talks.

You see, this is the deal in a nutshell. she is a governor of a remote state. No one has really ever heard of her before outside of Alaska. she then got tapped(don't ask me how but hey that's how it goes)to be the running mate for the second highest office in the land, which many feel was a detriment, and lost. Now after all that, some folks might just turn around, exhale, lick their wounds and leave it be. Since McCain gave his concession speech, she hasn't LEFT the spotlight ALONE! she's what some may call the flavor of the month if you want and since she's sorta hot, yes she just may be worth that much folks. I have heard Bill Clinton got $10 mill when he left the White House. Barack Obama got a mill when he published "The Audacity of Hope" and I promise you that when he DOES leave office, he'll get a bigger deal. so will his wife Michelle. (Remember "It Takes a Village?")and there you have it in a nutshell. not that which I stated is fact. Would I buy it? Uhh uhh; I'm going to get it through the library. believe me, they'll have it there.

I feel like she is just a fad. We saw it even in the short time she was on the campaign trail. At first people loved her but then when they started to get to know her and see how she was, she became a drag on the McCain campaign. I don't know if her book would be worth that much money. I don't think she's all that interesting. But maybe I would buy it in a few months off of amazon.com when it's cheap.

Is Sarah Palin worth $7 million? Are you kidding me...lol? Would I buy it? See above... Seriously, I have no idea what they want her to write about. However, I know she has her admirers who will probably line up around the block to be the first ones to get her book although I have no clue what the attraction is. If her writing style is like her speaking style it may be a bit hard to follow. If she writes just about the campaign I have to wonder what can she write that we don't already know and how truthful will it be? Whatever the case, I think I'll pass on this one. Annie

I most likely wouldn't read it either. I find books like that rather boring whether I like the person or not. However, if someone was stupid enough to give me $7 million I'd be stupid enough to take it.

Irish, we agree on this one TOTALLY! I'd sure take it if someone offered me $7 million to write a book, whether I could write or not! (Heck, at this point I'd take $700!) Annie

Would I rad the book? Probably. Would I buy it? I'm dirt poor so my willingness to spenf the money on hard or paper back books is tempered more by that than it is by inerrest in the book itself. Now all that being said, the money is irelevent. Why/ Simply this. Alaska has a state law that prohibit's the Governor from erning money from such sources while in public office. she would not be able to profit from it untill her term is up.

I don't think so, I'm not really interested in the book, but her supporters might really be interested in reading about her.
