Presidents and Ipods is having a president's day sale and as part of their promotion that having lists of what they think some of the big name presidents would have listened to had they had ipods.

George Washington apparently would been interested in books about war and self-help books on how to influence people and be an effective leader.

William Henry Harrison has a list that includes a number of men's health books and ways to get more done faster - like inauguration speeches.

Harry Truman's lists contains a bunch of spy novels.

Bill Clinton has a list that includes everything from the importance of truth, jazz, fast food, sex, and a tome about Hillary's upcoming run for president.

As relatively pointless as these lists are, it could be a fun party/Phi Alpha Theta game to come up with lists of what TV shows, books, music former presidents would enjoy and why.

Dr. History: Good stuff! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. For kicks I looked at Washington's (today's his day) and Truman's lists. I chuckled at seeing Covey's book (7 habits) under Washington. But why are 9-11 books under Truman? I also didn't get the Houdini book under Truman. Am I just slow this morning, or just more in tune with Washington today? - TL
