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.
