Supplemental #7 | American Presidents Reading Challenge

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!

2021 Q1 Wrap Up | 32 Books Between Jan and Mar

I tried so very, very hard to make this quick, but 32 books do not make for a fast time, even though I’ve already reviewed many of these on the channel. Actually, I was amazed how few I’d even talked about! This has something for everyone who reads as weirdly as me: young adult, fantasy, romance, and nonfiction. You can also skip towards the end to get my top pick so far in each category. Enjoy!

Supplemental #6 | American Presidential Reading Challenge

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!

Podcast Recommendations | Political and Historical

I have an admission to make. I have not been reading very much lately because I’ve become obsessed with some podcasts that have replaced my audiobooks. In this video, I recommend some of the best I found and admit how bad this obsession has gotten with one in particular.

Presidential Compare and Contrast | Supplementals #5

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!

Behind the Scenes at the White House | Supplementals #4

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!

Book to Documentary Review: “The Soul of America” by Jon Meacham

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.*

This is Too Many Books on Nixon | American Presidents Reading Challenge Supplementals #3

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.

Supplementals #2 | American Presidents Reading Challenge

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!
