I had to laugh when I read this.
It appears President Obama has to step up his reading pace if he wants to beat his predecessor in one particular measure: how many books a president can polish off a year.
In an interview with the BBC Tuesday, Obama said he is currently reading Joseph O’Neill’s 270-page novel “Netherland,” a book Obama first said he began back in April.
If Obama is close to finishing the novel, that puts him on less than a 10 book-a-year pace, far less than the close to 100 books President Bush was reportedly able to finish in the same amount of time.
In 2006, Bush read 95 books to Roves 110: a Herculean pace of nearly two books a week
Funny. I’d bet that Bush has not read 100 books in his lifetime. Here’s a guy who readily admitted early on in his presidency that he never even read newspapers.
So tell me, how many books are there in the Curious George series?
