Reading Paris 1919, by Margaret MacMillan, which is about post World War One. He enjoys reading about history and quotes, "Those who don't learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them."

Lately he's been reading books about Italy, as he's going there shortly for his honeymoon. One book is called Ciao America, by Beppe Severgnini, which is a commentary of the U.S. by an Italian living in Washington D.C.
