9780374280994.jpgFormer president Jimmy Carter was recently hospitalized for an upset stomach, but will resume his book tour for White House Diary today. Carter’s hospitalization interrupted four planned stops, including one at Washington D.C.’s Smithsonian museum.

The AP reported that 500 people waited for Carter at a Cleveland bookstore this week when he was admitted to a hospital as a precautionary move. President Barack Obama called Carter on Tuesday night to confirm his good health.

Carter’s grandson, Senator Jason Carter, told the AP: “He’s definitely resting comfortably and expected to continue his book tour this week. I haven’t talked to him, but nobody in the family is concerned.”

White House Diary was officially released on September 20th. A week prior to that date, a Google Books entry briefy broke the embargo on Carter’s book.
