Since leaving behind the stress of the oval office, Barack Obama's been living his best life. And rightfully so. I think we all remember his immediate vacation spent getting his water sports on with Richard Branson. These days? It seems Barack has eased into a slower pace of life, settling into his true calling. Book blogging.
Remember the good old days when the leader of the free world knew how to read? The former President just took to Instagram to share the ten books he's been reading so far this summer, making sure to also include a timely recommendation of the late author Toni Morrison's collected works.
And we've got to say, dude's got some pretty good taste. Looking for your next beach read?
View this post on InstagramIt's August, so I wanted to let you know about a few books I've been reading this summer, in case you're looking for some suggestions. To start, you can't go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison. Beloved, Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye, Sula, everything else — they're transcendent, all of them. You’ll be glad you read them. And while I’m at it, here are a few more titles you might want to explore.
