It's like the Oprah Book Club, but with fewer dysfunctional families....
Kevin at CalPundit has Bill Clinton's favorite 21 books up. I can proudly say that I've read five of them and I just bought King Leopold's Ghost about two weeks ago. I'm sure I'll get to it soon just like another of President Bill's favorites The Confessions of Nat Turner, which I bought in 1972 and read in January of this year.
I've been busy, okay?
Anyway, his list is a little heavy on the non-fiction and, like many of Kevin's readers point out, a little "calculated" looking. Would it kill him to admit that he liked The World According to Garp or Lonesome Dove?
This will, of course, cause many bloggers (including myself) to start compiling our favorite 21. Prepared to be...bored.
