Summer Reading, deja vu

heh/. I mean, it's almost as if he's carrying around a pile of books in order to look smart.

Looks like President Obama is one slow reader.

The commander in chief's list of beach books for his Martha's Vineyard vacation includes an environmental best seller that he bragged about reading almost a year ago on the campaign trail.

Obama was so taken with Thomas Friedman's "Hot, Flat and Crowded" that he quoted it at a rally last September in Flint, Mich., and one media outlet described it as the book that was currently on the then-candidate's nightstand.

The 448-page book appeared again on Monday on the list of five books that Obama planned to read on his vacation in Martha's Vineyard.

Personally, I like to carry "The Black Book of Communism" to impress folks. Doesn't usually work, 'cause peps don't usually know what it is.

What book do YOU carry around to impress people?
