Obama Hits the Bookstore

President Obama made his first vacation visit with his daughters to a bookstore on Martha's Vineyard and was seen holding five or six books, including Brave New World and The Bayou Trilogy, according to the AP.

"He went to the cashier after Malia and Sasha had picked out some books of their own, but disagreed with the $32 price he was quoted, which seemed low for the size of his stack. He paid by credit card, telling the cashiers that he uses it only about three times a year."

The Los Angeles Times notes Obama also bought the novel Room. Daughter Sasha had a book called Frost.
