"The Partly Cloudy Patriot" by Sarah Vowell
With the congressional elections drawing near, people may be getting sick of hearing about politics. Vowell's book is a breath of fresh air on this topic. Her perspective as a 30-something liberal urbanite is what you'd expect, but she gets her point across in a very non-offensive and humorous way.
It's a fun, quick read, and will make you think about patriotism and what it means to be an American today.
