OK. Now that Testimony is finished, I'm starting Dreams from My Father
. I figure if he will be my next President, I ought to know more about him. Anyone read / reading / plan to read this one?

I finished the preface and introduction and am a few pages into the actual book.  I like his writing style and know that I am going to enjoy this already.  His writing is much like his speeches - very articulate and eloquent - but at the same time - very down to earth.

PS- I am a conservative but open minded and hopeful about his term.

Pigdeon,  Definitely let me what you think - good or bad or both.  :)

Oh, I shall. I have to admit I am biased in his favor. He was my Senator; I've voted for him more than once. I really admire his (and his campaign's) knowledge and use of the internet. He has been doing a weekly podcast for a couple of years, and he and I agree on most policy issues. I wish I had his ambition.

well then I really would like to hear your thoughts since we possibly have opposing political views but both think favorably of him. :) I've always enjoyed chatting with people who are accepting of other opinions and beliefs. I've learned a lot that way.

I've read Dreams of my Father. Like Obama said in the prologue, it could've used 50 or so less pages. It is a bit slow going at points. Still, I liked it a lot and would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in finding out more about our next President. The most surprising thing I found about the book is that Obama is not as lilly white (no pun intended) as the media makes him out to be. His honesty is pretty refreshing, if not exactly politically prudent.

I purchased it last week & plan to read it also.

I finished Baby Shark today which was a good read. I have so many samples and am reading & deleting to find my next read. Decisions, decisions!  ??? I am interested in knowing how some of you choose your next book with so many to choose from?

Linda - you read Baby Shark!! I really liked that one - and the 2 that follow it. In fact, when I finished the series, I wrote an email to the author, Robert Fate. He replied by sending me a signed copy of Baby Shark. Wasn't that sweet??

Kirstin, Baby Shark was awesome. That was very sweet of Robert Fate to send you a signed copy. I plan to read the others also but need a change for now. I wrote a short review for The Book Corner since it was such a good read.

I am following Barak on Twitter and he is following me.  Wonder if he noticed that I am going to the YMCA this morning,  LOL
