Mark Twain a bestseller again

Twain You have to hand it to Mark Twain. A hundred years after his death, he makes the bestseller lists.

What's got readers stirred up? The upcoming Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1, which is due out Nov. 15 (there are three volumes planned). The Associated Press reports that for the past few days, the book has placed in the top five pre-orders at amazon.com and barnes&noble.com outpacing new books from John Grisham, Ken Follett and Jon Stewart.

From AP:  "Excerpts have appeared over the past several decades, but Twain's strong opinions on current affairs and other matters were left out, at his request. He had said that it was best to wait 100 years after his death for the whole book to be released."
