Obama to travel to South Pacific island to work on memoir: report


Former President Barack Obama is planning an extended stay in the South Pacific as he begins to write his memoir about his eight years in the Oval Office, according to a new report.
Obama has added the South Pacific island of Tetiaroa, once owned by actor Marlon Brando, to his post-presidency vacation spots, according to The Washington Post.
Both Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have signedmultimillion dollar book deals with Penguin Random House, the publisher announced last month.
The bidding war over the rights to the books had reportedly soared above $60 million, the Financial Times reported in February, although the specific financial terms of the book deals were not released. 
No details on the titles or publishing dates for the post-White House books have been released.
The Obamas plan to donate some of their advances for their books to charities, including the Obama Foundation, The New York Times reported.
