Obama at PSU included in new book

A reader called yesterday to praise the McClatchy newspapers' book on President Obama's run for the White House.

She had called earlier to let me know she was ordering one, so I expected a report.

I was pleasantly surprised when I got home and looked through my copy. It's a beautiful book and it includes a page on Obama's campaign visit to Penn State, from our coverage.

That stood out for me in the 144-page book and it'll stand out for any local reader who wants a keepsake.

The book also features our front page, along with other McClatchy front pages reporting the election results.

Now I've heard from readers who slam this book and us promoting it. It clearly isn't for them, and that's fine. But some readers will appreciate the book, and we've made it available for them.

Just wanted to give you an update now that the book is off the press and ready for mailing.
