MARTHA'S VINEYARD (CNN) - President Obama and his daughters, Malia and Sasha visited a local bookstore in Vineyard Haven to purchase some books for their summer reading.
No official word on what books the girls bought but White House officials say the president bought two books for himself: The Bayou Trilogy, a collection by Daniel Woodrell and Rodin's Debutante by Ward Just.
The White House also said Mr. Obama brought several books with him to read on the trip: Cutting for Stone, a novel by Abraham Verghese; To the End of the Land, a novel by David Grossman; and The Warmth of Other Suns, which is the story of America's Great Migration, by Isabel Wilkerson.
