I've always loved that Obama reads to his children, most notably "Harry Potter" and that he has responded to Flat Stanley letters from elementary schoolchildren. It's great that he is a reflective reader and that he encourages it in others.

As the article points out, his reading has shaped his points of view. I have witnessed that in my my own son. His ideas have been broaded and shaped by his extensive and varied reading.

He and John McCain both listed For Whom the Bells Tolls as one of their favorites. I'm trying to find my old copy so I can reread it this year. I know I have one around here somewhere.
