Obama's summer reading list more like a summer re-reading list

Obama was so taken with Thomas Friedman’s “Hot, Flat and Crowded” that he quoted it at a rally last September in Flint, Mich., and one media outlet described it as the book that was currently on the then-candidate’s nightstand.

The 448-page book appeared again on Monday on the list of five books that Obama planned to read on his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
