Obama and Publishing
There is an article on NPR's website called "Obama: A New Force in Publishing". It talks about how Obama is an avid reader and that if people catch side of what he is reading, they will go out and buy the book themselves.They think that his influence will be as strong as Oprah's for the book industry. Another great thing is, ""You actually have both a writer and a reader in the White House who is articulate and eloquent in his own right."
There is also a great article from the New York Times called "From Books, President Found Voice" that goes into further details about what he likes to read and probably why, such as how words help give people a voice. They also talk about the comparison between him and Lincoln.
It is exciting to think that we have a writer and a reader in the White House!
