The Plot Against America : A Novel One of my new years resolutions is to read more. I’ve always been an avid reader but for some reason this past year I haven’t really been reading as much as I would like to. So yesterday I joined a book club and the book we are reading this month is The Plot Against America by Phillip Roth. It’s a fictional story about what would have happened if American history took a different turn and voted Charles Lindberg in as President of the United states. Now, according to the post-script, Lindberg was never the Republican nominee against FDR (unless I’m missing something), but, apparently, it had been suggested that he run several times. I didn’t know this but Lindberg was a Nazi sympathizer. So you can imagine where the story will go…

I’ve only read a few pages and it is already really good! I will let you know what I think when I’m finished.
