President Obama's summer book list

I read an article on http://www.slate.com/ by John Dickerson that discets the meaning behind the titles President Obama is reading this summer. I know, too much time on their hands! Still, I found it interesting. :) Here is the list, but for the discussion on what each titles says about him you have to read the article, cited here.

The Way Home by George Pelecanos, a crime thriller based in Washington, D.C.;

Lush Life by Richard Price, a story of race and class set in New York's Lower East Side;

• Tom Friedman's Hot, Flat, and Crowded, on the benefits to America of an environmental revolution;

John Adams by David McCullough;

Plainsong by Kent Haruf, a drama about the life of eight different characters living in a Colorado prairie community.


I don't know about you, but The Way Home sounds pretty interesting! :)
