Presumably Partisan-free Summer Reading

MediaBistro is offering free samples from U.S. President Barack Obama’s summer reading list. While he’s vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, the president has selected the following for quality hammock time:

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

If you haven’t read one of these, perhaps the free preview will intrigue you.
