I was just planning my vacation reading and going through books, past and present to decide what I want to add to the Kindle. I got to wondering what others are reading. I don't read much fiction and will list only politics-related reading ... Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free - Charles Pierce What's the Matter with Kansas?: How Conservatives Won the Heart of America - Thomas Frank (Really looking forward to this one because "... unravels the great political mystery of our day: Why do so many Americans vote against their economic and social interests?..." which I think is utterly fascinating.) Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (and StickYou with the Bill) - David Cay Johnston How to Win a Fight With a Conservative (Which I don't think is possible because they come from such an illogical and nonsensical pov) - Daniel Kurtzman Liars For Jesus: The Religious Right's Alternate Version of American History Vol. 1 - Chris Rodda ("... debunks many of the historical lies invented and used by the Christian nationalist history revisionists in their efforts to further their far right political agenda and destroy the wall of separation between church and state in America. Liars for Jesus is not a book about religion. It is a history book, presenting and fully documenting the true stories and historical facts that are distorted in the "Christian nation" pseudo-history promoted by the religious right.") I just finished the new Bill Maher, New Rules and shoulda saved it for lightweight vacation reading. Oh well. So, if you read political books, what's on your nightstand or in your Kindle?
