Needing a good book for any upcoming travels, gifts, or just your regular down time reading? Well, here's a wonderful source as The Commander-in-Chief recently released his reading list and recommendations. Now whether he actually had time to read these books, or he delegated the task off to a staffer, is another story. He does usually have some “down time” in the summer where he’s know to hang out on Martha’s Vineyard. We all know there’s nothing better than chillin’ on the beach with a margarita and a good book. Well, we’ll never know for sure if it’s coming directly from him, but for now it’s pretty cool that the prez has a few suggestions of the literary sort.
I’ve only read one from the list (The Girl on the Train- an intriguing thriller, but a bit of a popular, obvious choice- ha). I am very much looking forward to reading and reviewing Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad.
