On the Books Aug. 25: Steve Jobs biography to be updated with resignation news, and more

++ Steve Jobs’ biography Steve Jobs: A Biography will include the Apple CEO’s point of view on last night’s announcement of his resignation. Biographer Walter Isaacson “speaks to Jobs regularly and is still working on final chapter of the book,” a Simon & Schuster rep told PCMag. This is the first biography with the famously closed-off Apple chief’s blessing, and we’re promised unprecedented access – Jobs didn’t even request a final review before the book goes to print. Steve Jobs will hit bookstores in November.

++ Do you Tweet or Facebook obsessively about Stephen King? You may have a chance to get a free, early download of “Mile 81” with a sneak peek at 11/22/63.

++ Haruki Murakami’s international bestseller Norwegian Wood has been taken off reading lists in New Jersey after a “rash” of complaints from parents.
