Sarah Palin is writing a tell-all. Or at least a tell-some. The Associate Press reports that the Alaskan governor and former vice presidential candidate has signed a deal with Harper Colins to pen a memoir for publication in the spring of 2010 (which happens to be when she runs for relection in Alaska). Palin tells the AP: “Being a voracious reader, I read a lot today and have read a lotgrowing up. And having that journalism degree, all of that, will be agreat assistance for me in writing this book, talking about thechallenges and the joys, balancing the work and parenting, and, in mycase, work means running the state.”
