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!
FDR to Nixon | American Presidents Reading Challenge Ep. 5
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!
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!
Supplementals #1 – The Founding | American President Reading Challenge
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.
American President Reading Challenge Ep. 3 – Garfield to McKinley
It’s that time again! I’m going to try my hardest to get you guys all caught up on what I’m reading, starting with this episode of James Garfield to William McKinley, minus Benjamin Harrison because nobody really recently has cared about him I guess. This is a video with two really interesting books sandwiching some meh ones. Enjoy, fellow history nerds!
American Presidents Reading Challenge Ep. 2 – Tyler to Hayes
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…).
American President Reading Challenge Ep. 1 – Washington to Jackson
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!
