The primaries are not until next year, but that's barely enough time to read the candidates' books.

Newt Gingrich alone has written 24. Tim Pawlenty's "Courage to Stand" begins, "my family was eating breakfast one morning, discussing Greece and its financial trouble."

Mitt Romney has two books, but the second, "No Apology," was re-issued in paperback with some critical parts changed to reflect his latest thinking on issues like healthcare. Of course, Barack Obama is also running, and this may be your chance to finally read candidate Obama's, "Dreams from my Father," and "The Audacity of Hope."
