The Barack Obama Book Club

The Daily Beast  must have had some spare time on their hands, as they have come out with a list of all the books that Barack Obama was seen reading during the presidential election campaign.

The Daily Beast has combed newspaper archives and peeked into Air Force One tote bags to bring you the complete list of the books Obama has been reading—or, well, strategically let on that he is reading—since the beginning of the 2008 campaign. This is the Barack Obama Book Club, and the list shows a predilection for presidential profiles, a weakness for explain-it-all bestsellers, and the occasional hankering for literary fiction.

Christchurch City Libraries is obviously well up with the President as we have most of these titles, however it could be interesting to ponder what titles  might grace the bedside tables of some of our politicians?
