There’s a piece up today at The Hill on Sen. Rand Paul and his travel habits as he explores a potential 2016 presidential campaign. He flies coach:

And one little nugget buried in the story is Paul’s choice of reading material on these flights, including which fiction author he likes:

Paul passes the hours by reading nonfiction and policy-oriented books or leafing through articles and briefing papers. On the flight to Dallas he focused on an article about California’s Proposition 47, which reduced sentences for drug possession and nonviolent property crimes.

He read more fiction in medical school, he said, though he still picks up the occasional novel. He’s a fan of Act of War, a thriller by Brad Thor.


Paul then tweeted out the Brad Thor book recommendation to his thousands of followers:

Next time, Senator, include the link to buy the book at Amazon, huh?
