President Obama Goes Book Shopping

President Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia took some time out of their summer vacation on Martha’s Vineyard to pick up some reading material. They visited the Bunch of Grapes bookstore in Vineyard Haven on August 20th. A store employee said they were looking for “books that were transitional from, you know, young teenage to adult, in that middle period.” The president purchased:

The Land of Elyon series by Patrick Carman
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Red Pony by John Steinbeck
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

The bookstore also gave the president an advanced reader copy of Freedom by Jonathan Franzen. The book, which is currently number seven on Amazon’s bestseller list, will be in bookstores on August 31, 2010.
