President Obama ventured to a local bookstore in Washington, D.C. on Small Business Saturday last week. The books he chose to purchase run the range from fiction to non-fiction and a good number of children’s books. The books below — plus the classics Ballad of the Sad Cafe and Other Stories by Carson McClullers and Ragtime by E. L. Doctorow — were on the president’s list. Did you do some local shopping on Saturday? The downtown Holly Trolley Tour was lots of fun!
