Twelve Titles for the President-Elect

In December, noting that President-Elect Trump has said he doesn't read much, Back of Beyond Books, Moab, Utah, asked customers to suggest titles that the store could include in a presidential library. About 75 titles were nominated, and the store narrowed them down to a dozen, which are being shipped to Trump Tower in New York City next week. The box will include the following titles:
