GEENA DAVIS: "I just bought Born to Rule
[by Julia P. Gelardi], about five granddaughters of Queen Victoria who each became a queen ... of Russia, of Spain, of Greece ... I wanted to read about what it would have been like to be a woman in power more than a century ago."
LAURA BUSH: "I mainly read fiction. The Night Journal
[by Elizabeth Crook] is historical fiction about the West, and that's where I hike every year. The President just read Challenger Park
[by Stephen Harrigan] and highly recommends it."
: Beach reading? "If I can even get to the beach—I don't even know if I am going to have time. But I have just started Jay McInerney's The Good Life
: "I am reading The Alchemist
[by Paulo Coelho] right now. I really like it."
SUPERMAN BRANDON ROUTH: "I don't know if most people will want to read something this heavy, but I really recommend Atlas Shrugged
by Ayn Rand. It will take you all summer to read but you just might learn something, be inspired and have your opinions changed."
