Dalla Casa Bianca ad una libreria di Whashington, ecco il presidente Obama intento a fare shopping, come da sua abitudine in una libreria indipendente ( #altrocheamazon ). Tra le sue scelte, Purity di Jonathan Franzen e il nuovo libro di Salman Rushdie da poco pubblicato anche in Italia, Due anni otto mesi e ventotto notti. Tra gli acquisti, anche “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck, Book 8,” di Jeff Kinney, ottavo libro della serie Diario di una schiappa. Che voglia donarlo a qualche presidente del consiglio da queste parti?
Before President Obama left for this week’s United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris, he got in a little book shopping.
President Obama took his daughters, Sasha and Malia, shopping at Upshur Street Books in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, the Washington Post reports. The trip was in honor of Small Business Saturday, independent retailers’ answer to Black Friday.
The president left with two fall literary fiction titles, “Purity” by Jonathan Franzen and “Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights” by Salman Rushdie.
But the bulk of his purchase was made up of young-adult fiction. The Obamas took home three novels from Cynthia Voigt’s “Kingdom” series: “Jackaroo,” “On Fortune’s Wheel” and “Elske.” (Missing from the family’s haul was the third book in the series, “The Wings of a Falcon,” which appears to be out of print.)
Other books destined for the White House included Jeff Kinney’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck, Book 8,” Rachel Renée Russell’s “Dork Diaries 1: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life,” Natalie Lloyd’s “A Snicker of Magic” and Jerry Spinelli’s “Stargirl.”
