Books for Barack: President Obama’s Summer Reading List

We all know that President Obama loves to read books.

Here’s the latest picks from the presidential shelves: Obama’s 2011 summer reading list. And while I know it must have gone through 50 calculators and approval by various aides and demographic analyst wizards and robot-comp-whizzers to be sure it was the BEST POSSIBLE AND MOST LIKEABLE LIST POSSIBLE or something, I like to imagine that really, these are just 5 books that he went “ooh, that sounds good,” when hearing about, and made a list, and handed it to someone, and this is all real. Anyway, here is what Barack Obama is reading this summer. Allegedly.

The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
Rodin’s Debutante by Ward Just
To the End of the Land by David Grossman
The Bayou Trilogy by Daniel Woodrell
