OK, so my first thought upon hearing President Obama was going on vacation was:
I wonder what he's gonna read?
During his vacation last year, word got out that he was reading an ARC of Freedom by Jonathan Franzen, and I was all happy to know about his reading life.
So this little piece from the Daily Beast was well-timed. It's a list of all the books President Obama has read since he was elected.
It's a pretty good list. I was glad to see a few novels in there--a guy in a high-pressure job needs a little bit of a break.
And stumbling across the Daily Beast list made me Google to find out what he's reading this year, and yes, guys, it's out there!
So, yes, I'm a snoop. The man's trying to be vacationing, and I'm all scrutinizing his reading material. But it's interesting, you know?
