Bob Dylan to pen six books

NNew York: Bob Dylan has six books in the works after a deal inked with publishers Simon & Schuster, according to a report Wednesday.

The legendary singer will be writing two sequels to his best-selling "Chronicles: Volume One" published in 2004, Crain`s New York Business reported, citing unnamed insiders.

Another volume will be based on Dylan`s radio show at Sirius XM satellite radio services. It was unclear what the other three books would cover.

Simon & Schuster would not comment on the report.

"Chronicles" was a best-seller in 2004. Dylan told Rolling Stone that good reviews of the book "some of `em almost made me cry -- in a good way."
