Story highlights

  • Other celebs also have books out

(CNN)Amy Schumer is being praised for her candid new memoir, "The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo"

And while not all of the attention has been positive, (some folks in Tampa, Florida and Fayetteville, North Carolina have taken offense to her saying in the book that "I know for a fact that no one who lives there has ever read a book") the biography is at the top of the Amazon charts.
Schumer is not the only star who has recently put pen to paper - or rather finger to keyboard - to share their life stories. There's a wave of big celebrity biographies rolling in over the next few months.
