Looks like Vanna White's official autobiography--"Vanna Speaks," due out from Warner Books May 21--won't be alone.

Robin-Tani's paperback will go for $3.95; "Vanna Speaks" will retail in hardcover for $15.95. A spokeswoman for Warners is unperturbed by the cheaper rival: "The two books will speak for themselves. The least we can say is, ours is by Vanna White."
