That’s pretty much all there is to say about that–Knopf will be releasing The Bridge, New Yorker Editor David Remnick’s biography of President Obama, simultaneously in print and digital editions. Knopf announced a 200,000 copy print run, and good for them to embrace in infinite print run of digital rather than hold up the eBook as was the case with other, er, important books by, um, political figures who quit their governorships to churn out a book and be on TV.

The Bridge
, which Knopf calls “a sweeping and deeply reported look at both the life of the 44th President and the complex saga of race in America that led to his historic election,” will be out on April 6.

If you want to lug around one of them heavy old-fashioned books, by all means go ahead. But by then, you’ll even be able to read this thing on your iPad!
