This just in: President Bush's book reports!
lots of people don't seem to believe that the president actually read the books he's claimed to have gone through this year. did I hear he's done something like 60 so far, including ''three Shakespeares?"

well...here's the proof, with a couple provided for you gratis:

Lord of the Flies

"Lord of the Flies by William Golding is the greatest book I have ever read. What it teaches us is that you have to be ready to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps and not hang around losers like Piggy the way Ralph did for too long. Ralph was at first considered the coolest guy but then everyone saw him with Piggy and that he had the wrong type of people for friends so they sided with Roger. Lord of the Flies teaches us that it is bad to wear glasses and be fat, unless you are Dick Cheneys age when it doesnt matter. This book is very sad, but it also makes me very glad because it shows how far we have come as a nation. Whereas if you have glasses and are fat back then, you would get a boulder rolled on top of you, but today you would just be voted off the island and not be eligible for the million dollars prize. So that is more kinder and gentler."



Brave New World

"Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is the greatest book I have ever read. It teaches us that science is not good for human civilization because it makes nightmares out of reproduction and other stuff. It also shows us the 'noble savage' is noble even if the elitistical so-called elitists think they are more sophisticationed and better. In fact, the savage is better than everybody. So there. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley teaches us for example what happens in a country where stem cell research would happen. Everyone and his mother should read this book."



Frankenstein

"Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is not the greatest book I have ever read. It is very disappointing. Boris Karloffs Frankenstein is good because he talks to people on their own level, not above them, in words they can understand ('I love deadhate living,' 'smoke goodfire bad,' etc.). This is very important. Mary Shelley makes Frankenstein seem snobby and elitistical and we do not sympathize with him. He sounds more like the faggy second mad scientist doctor with the white hair in Bride of Frankenstein. Perhaps it can be said that Mary Shelley had a tough act to follow in trying to do a book of the movie, but I say she should have known better than to mess with a classic. Karloff goodMary Shelley bad!"
