Coming the Week of 11/16

Getting the most attention of the books coming next week, of course, is Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue. Palin taped an interview with Oprah on Thursday for Monday’s show. An interview with Barbara Walters will air in five parts, beginning on Good Morning America on Tuesday, the day the book is released. Copies have been strategically leaked, causing a press feeding frenzy, but most sources say there are no surprises; as the AP puts it, the book confirms that “the McCain-Palin campaign was not a happy family.”

Based on holds, next week’s biggest book is the new James Patterson I, Alex Cross. At four large library systems, holds are nearly three times higher on the Patterson title than on Palin’s (2,546 for Patterson; 885 for Palin).
