Barack Obama Earns Millions from Book Royalties

Monday, 16 May 2011 07:00 PM


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama was worth millions of dollars in 2010, mostly due to royalties from the sale of his books, financial disclosure forms showed Monday.

Obama earned between $100,000 and $1 million from "Audacity of Hope," a book tied in with his run for the White House in 2008, and between $1 million and $5 million from "Dreams from My Father," a memoir about his upbringing, according to the forms.

Both books were published before Obama became president.
