Reading The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream, by Barack Obama. She's been working on the campaign and has read his other book, too--Dreams from My Father, which is a memoir. Planned is a children's book which he'll write with his wife and daughters.

Her favorite book is Angle of Repose, by Wallace Stegnar. It's an historical novel set in the American West and contains letters from one generation to the next. It's fiction, she said, but well researched, roughly educational and captivating.

A book that helped her succeed--The Success Principles, by Jack Canfield, author of the Chicken Soup series. In the last semester of law school she received 4 A's. The book emphasizes goal setting and visualization.
