In this supplemental episode of my American Presidents Reading Challenge, I focus on books I read that compare and contrast two or more presidents in the same book. These have become my favorites of late, and there are some really good ones in here!
It’s time for another supplemental episode of my American Presidents Reading Challenge! For this one, I’ve corralled all my books that talk about life at the White House behind the scenes, without the president or presidency as the focus. Enjoy!
OOH BOY has it been a time since I’ve done one of these reviews (3 years, actually), and this one was totally accidental. In this review, I talk about both the book “The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels” by Jon Meacham and also the HBO documentary that was made of it. I have *feelings.*
Back at it with an ACTUAL episode of the ACTUAL challenge! This one covers FDR to Richard Nixon minus … nobody? Wow. That’s actually impressive. Let’s go!
I read nine books on the Nixon presidency. 10 if you count the actual biography. I never thought the answer “can you read too many books on Nixon in a row?” would be a question I would ever ask myself, but here we are.
How can there be supplemental reading if I haven’t even finished my original presidents? Easy! I’m super obsessive when it comes to new topics. This episode covers all the extra books I’ve read around the founding of America, including focal characters such as Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, George Washington, and Benedict Arnold.
It’s been a year since episode one, but I’ve been having trouble making videos–not reading! Last year I started a reading challenge to read at least one biography on every American President, and I’m really getting there! Enjoy episode 2 on John Tyler to Rutherford B. Hayes (minus a few because they’re playing hard to get…).
Hey guys! Doing some video back posting on the blog because live has been crazy, but not to worry. I haven’t been making a ton of videos in the last year since I’ve posted. This one is about a reading challenge I started that is still ongoing where I try to read at least one biography on every United States President! Why? Watch and find out!
I’m usually not a fan of novels in verse, but the reading experience of all three of these is really interesting. Two have to deal with racial identities in America and one is about disability in India–and none have the same story line. They range the gambit from middle grade to young adult. Two, however, were more successful than one … but you’ll have to see which is which.
