In addition to golf, tennis and family time, Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton has indicated that Obama will be covering a fair amount of literary terrain while vacationing on the Vineyard. On the reading list for the week:

--Tom Friedman's "Hot, Flat and Crowded"

--David McCullough's "John Adams"

--Richard Price's "Lush Life"

--Kent Haruf's "Plain Song"

--George Pelecanos's "The Way Home"

In all, this comes to about 2,300 pages, or 300 pages a day.
