We are all being deluged with politics right now.  Most people complain about hearing too much about the elections, but I have to admit that I really enjoy it.  I love to watch CNN and keep up with the latest political news.  There are lots of books about politics to read - from books on the individual candidates to books on the Democratic and Republican Parties.  The choices are wide and vast.  I’ve made a list of some books that might be of interest to you.  Any of these books can be purchased through  Amazon.com.  I hope you’ll find the list helpful and that your candidate wins (as long as he/she is a Democrat!).  If you know of a good book on a candidate or on politics, share it with us!
