The President’s Reading

This week, the New York Times surveyed our new president’s favorite reading ("From Books, New President Found Voice", Jan. 19, 2008). As an accomplished orator, author and wordsmith, President Obama was often seen with a book in hand during the campaign. Here are some of the new chief of state’s choices:

Parting the Waters by Taylor Branch

Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin

Ghost Wars by Steve Coll

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison

Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

Other recent articles have offered recommendations of books the President should put on his reading list. Any suggestions?
