Hilary Clinton's memoir, Hard Choices, just hit bookshelves across the continent. In this interview with the New York Times, she shares her favourite books, those she read to her daughter, and those which have had influence in her life. You may be surprised at what you read in this column.
Currently she's reading Goldfinch by Donna Tartt; Maya Angelou's Mom & Me & Mom; and Missing You, the recent release by author Harlan Coben.
I'm reading Fault in Our Stars by John Green and The Death of Lucy Kyte by Nicola Upson.
What we have in common, pertaining to our reading tastes:
Book with greatest influence: the Bible
Author whose series must be read as they come available: Louise Penny
Guilty pleasures: gardening books...
She and I both read John Grisham!
I like her taste in books. I just may have to pick up her memoir after all. I really wasn't going to because I didn't like the person the media makes her out to be but maybe I was wrong. Maybe the media is wrong. Perhaps not. At any rate, I now want to read Hard Choices.
