NYtimes.com reports: "The book publishing industry may be in a slump, but not when it comes to celebrity authors. The comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has signed a deal with Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, to write her third book, “a look at her life through her humor,” the publisher said on Sunday. The book is scheduled for publication in the fall. “I found that between my talk show, ‘American Idol’ and my late-night blogging, I didn’t have enough ways to express myself,” Ms. DeGeneres said in a statement. Her first two books were best sellers."
