Moscow : Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he would like to write a book but is too busy for that right now."Write it? I don't even have the time to dictate it," he said at a news conference.

Putin said his friends had urged him to write a book."But I don't have the time or energy left to record it on a Dictaphone. I have other things to worry about," Putin said. The president, however, did not suggest what the book might be about.
