Hundreds of fans of former U.S. President George W. Bush lined up for a book signing Tuesday at a bookstore in Bush's hometown Dallas, local media reported.

An estimated 400 people, some of whom reportedly camped overnight, showed up at the Borders bookstore in north Dallas, only about a mile from Bush's Dallas home, for a chance to see the former president and get an autographed copy of his new memoir Decision Points.

Bush, wearing a coat and tie and accompanied by security personnel, arrived at the store shortly after 8 a.m. local time and began signing books nearly a half-hour ahead of his scheduled time to start.

Bush, who had kept a low profile since leaving office, had a number of interviews ahead of his Nov. 9 release of his book about his presidency, Decision Pionts.

The book outlines the eight years of Bush's presidency, and went through various key moments in his presidency, including Sept. 11 terrorist attack, his decisions to send troops to Afghanistan and Iraq and the response to Hurricane Katrina.
