Bill Clinton's "My Life" Reaches Shelves All Over Region 8.

June 22, 2004--Posted at 5:30 p.m. CDT

JONESBORO--The life of former president Bill Clinton is now available in a 957 page autobiography.

"My Life" hit shelves at midnight.....and now,  Bill Clinton will wait to see how readers respond to efforts he made to shed light on the up's and down's of his life.

Several folks around Region 8 got a head start this morning on reading "My Life".

The book's release even had people at Wal-Mart before 7:00 a.m to ensure a copy of the book everyone is talking about.

"I am just anxious to see what is going on,"said Joe Cashion. Cashion arrived at Wal-Mart at 7:00 a.m.

Peggy Dame was another early riser.

"I think this might help us see who he really is,"said Dame. 

Some readers even say this book might help shine Bill Clinton's somewhat tarnished reputation.

"He's letting people know what is going on, or what went on,"said Cashion.

"I still think he is one of the greatest presidents we ever had. Great foreign policy, great economic president, but his private life impacted that, and that is sad,"said Jonesboro resident Jim Stillwell.

Clinton talks extensively about his childhood growing up in Arkansas, which is why many Arkansan's say they are interested in reading "My Life".

"He went back to places he went when he grew up, and re-established connections with his friends,"said Jonesboro resident Perry Jackson.

"Well he was a president from Arkansas first of all, and I think he did good job for our country,"said Dame.

Politics and scandal aside, William Jefferson Clinton is a proud Arkansan through and through.

He acknowledges his achievements and admits his mistakes.
