"Dreams From My Father" As "To Kill A Mockingbird"

My guess is that over the next one to two decades, Barack Obama`s Dreams from My Father will become one of the standards on high school and community college reading lists, like To Kill a Mockingbird,  or that Latina-authored snooze The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.

I suspect there will be a big market in Cliff Notes among students who don`t quite make it all the way through Dreams.

By the way, kids, the reason Lord of the Flies is on all school reading lists is because it`s your teachers` way of letting you know what they think of you.
