So, I was listening to Rachel Maddow’s interview with Claire McCaskill from last week. And right at the end, Maddow asked her what she was reading.

Imagine my delighted surprise when McCaskill told her that she had just finished the Josephine B. Trilogy by Sandra Gulland.

You guys, these books are the GREATEST, and no knows about them. They tell the story of Empress Josephine, Napoleon’s first wife, from her childhood in the Caribbean, to her experiences in the French Revolution and her relationship with Napoleon. Totally fun, beach-y reads. You know, for your November beach trips.


What books do you want to proselytize about? (Alternatively, what should Claire McCaskill read next?)
