President Obama's Summer Reading List

Today, President Obama released his summer reading list. Read these books and, before you know it, you'll be the president. If I had to guess, I'd say you've probably read at least two of them already. You're almost halfway there.

Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life by William Finnegan, The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead, H Is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald, The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, Seveneves by Neal Stephenson.

And in case you missed it, here's what made the cut last year:

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert, The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Washington: A Life by Ron Chernow.

While you're working on your presidential reading assignment why not listen to the music on President Obama's summer playlists?
