WWOR?: What would Obama (or McCain) read?

Here’s a literary tidbit especially relevant this weekend: the San Francisco Chronicle posted a pair of fun articles in the last couple of days related to published lists of “favorite books” named by each presidential candidate.

 

The first article has ‘Frisco area literati, including authors Susan Griffin and Daniel “Lemony Snicket” Handler and poet/essayist Gary Snyder, rate and interpret each candidate’s choices for favorite books.

 

The second article goes a bit further, and the same literary lights suggest appropriate reading material for whichever of the two men becomes the president-elect.

 

The question to you

What books would you recommend the new president-elect read before taking office?
