Obama Reads Brave New World Posted at 9:44 PM by Rico Simpkins

Obama/SupermanWe all know that President Obama is a nerd. After all, he grew up watching Star Trek, knows how to give a Vulcan salute, and once claimed to be from Krypton. Now, however, we have evidence that he’s reading at least one book from the WWEnd database. According to the LA Times, Aldous Huxley‘s classic Brave New World is on his summer reading list. He’s also apparently letting 13-year old Malia read it, since it is on her school’s required reading list (despite being one of the 10 most banned books in US schools). That’s one book marked "read" on BookTrackr™ for the Commander in Chief. What SF/F book do you think the President should read next?

Dune. Then Game of Thrones.

I’d be more impressed if he then led a discussion with his daughter’s class on why the book has gotten banned, the first amendment, and the role of government in society creation and/or manipulation. I’m not holding my breath.
