Monday Discussion: Election Reading

Well, tomorrow is the big decision day.  Here at the BPL, I will be unveiling our antidote to the tense election season tomorrow and running it all week-- the Author Death Brackets. By the way, I am hoping the election is decided before my 5 post series ends.

Today though let's take a more traditional look at Presidential reads. Intern Bill made us this great list of Presidential fiction available at the BPL.
But this year, I am too nervous and tense to go with a realistic read.  I think I need some humor to lighten the mood.  My pick is Taft 2012.  Click here for the post I did back in January previewing this novel's release; it includes a book trailer video.

What about you?  For today's Monday Discussion, let me know what book you would suggest for election night reading.

The Anarchist: A Novel by John Smolens. Relieves tension for sure.

As a huge fan of presidential
non-fiction, I have to recommend
Ron Chernow's Washington: A Life
and Edmund Morris' three volume
work on Theodore Roosevelt. As
for fiction Fletcher Knebel's
Night of Camp David is very good.
Tells the story of a Vice-
President who concludes that
the President is becoming
mentally unstable. May add to
"Election tension' more than
relieve it, but a good read.
