Who Inspires President Barack Obama?


On Tuesday I told you President Obama’s favorite poet now let me tell you something else about his literary tastes.

He has confessed to being a lover of poetry and fiction (I can imagine the President reading a novel of mine one dat while in office). During his first election he was inspired by 5 books. They range and are eclectic but that is no surprise about his selection since he is very intellectual. I wanna know when he has the time tho?! Anywho…here are the five books that inspired our President.

Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Complete Project Gutenberg Abraham Lincoln Writings by Abraham Lincoln

Moby Dick by Herman melville

The Complete Works by William Shakespeare and

The Bible

Shocked? Who inspires you?

Peace and luv!

    My favourite books that have left a huge impression on me, are Lee Harper-To Kill A Mockingbird; Oscar Wilde; Keats. I love their wit, intelligence, and sentiments.
