I managed to get my hands on A Promised Land by Barack Obama. I managed to get at Sainsbury’s at £18 (full price £35) which I believe to be a good price. Maybe I could have waited to get it cheaper, especially as it takes me ages to read. Mr. Obama definitely writes as he speaks. He is precise, thoughtful in his writing. So far I am enjoying. I live in the UK I don’t get the USA political structure, but I had been reading up on it a bit after the Biden Harris win. So some of the terminology made sense, otherwise I would be like ….umm.
I was in New York at the head office of the company I worked for at the time. Obama just got elected. He was in New York. My colleague and I where walking around. There was all this commotion and I thought is it a rock star or what? I stood at a corner with a bit of view. And by luck it was the right corner to see President Obama wave as he speed by. Oh I realised that was the presidential motorcade and MAN it was SOMETHING I have never seen in my life.
I was on cloud 9. I was already on cloud 9 when Obama became president. I was so happy. Seeing him made that trip wonderful a moment I treasure. Pure luck. It was the best, especially as my job at the time was quite horrific/ horrible.
So now I am slowly reading this. I will let you know when I finish. What are you currently reading?
