The first in a series of self-penned personal histories, Bob Dylan's Chronicles: Volume One blows out of the stores at a fast rate. Simon & Schuster's first printing of 250,000 copies had to be supplemented with four additional printings, bringing the in-print total to 375,000. Opportunities for promotion of the book and cross-promotion with Dylan's music are plentiful, as he and his band are on a nationwide concert tour through November 21 (details can be found on www.bobdylan.com). S&S is also releasing an updated edition of Lyrics: 1962— 2001, a compendium of lyrics to almost all of Dylan's songs.
