Trying to get caught up on some extra books for my American Presidents Reading Challenge, and boy do I have feelings on some of these. Not a particularly good set, so give me recommendations if you can think of any!
In this episode, I cover my legit biographies of James Monroe, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and both Bush presidents. I can’t believe how long it has taken me to make another episode of the actual challenge. I hope you’re enjoying the supplemental videos, I guess?
I actually enjoyed and would recommend all 5 of these books, and I think that’s the first time I can say that. However, I will mention that I am ill in this video (like I’d literally gone to urgent care the morning I filmed this) (I am fine) (mostly), so if I didn’t do a book justice or something doesn’t make sense, feel free to use the comments for further discussion!
So, I’ll be honest, some of these are more tenuously connected to this challenge than others, but each one is important. There are some really good ones and some really meh ones. There are some new releases and some older stuff. I’m trying to cover literally everything here, apparently. Enjoy!
Up until now, these have had a theme. Now it’s just anarchy. I’ve got a few more books I’ve read that aren’t my biographies of a specific president. Actually, these might even be more interesting. Enjoy!
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!
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.
These books are extras on the Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson administrations and boy do I have some thoughts and feelings. This is why you read more than one, people!
