After enjoying, yes, actually enjoying President Obama’s press conference last night (with special thanks for ending just in time for LOST),  I was thrilled to learn this morning that he is currently reading NETHERLAND by Joseph O’Neill.

From David Leonhardt’s exclusive interview with President Obama in this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine: “At the end of our conversation, when I asked him if he was reading anything good, he said he had become sick enough of briefing books to begin reading a novel in the evenings —Netherland, by Joseph O’Neill.”

 

CNN’s blog Political Ticker, CBS News Political Hotsheet, Huffington Post, PW, Amazon’s blog Omnivoracious, NYT’s blog Papercuts, all covered the story.
