Challenge: U.S. Presidents Reading Project

Lezlie has started a perpetual challenge to read one nonfiction book about each president. There is no time limit and it can be retroactive. I will not post reviews of books I read before I started blogging. This is a great life goal, and my thanks goes to Lezlie for thinking of this challenge.

Book lists and other participants are available on the challenge's blog (here).

Although I have read biographies and histories of several presidents, I am going to start clean -- except for our second president. I read David McCullough's John Adams when it first came out. It was my top read for that year, and I can't imagine that there'd be a better or more thorough study. I highly recommend it (but will not be reviewing it here).

As luck would have it, I have books about Teddy Roosevelt, Lincoln, Jefferson, and FDR already waiting in my TBR pile, so I'll likely read them first.

Stay tuned!

I've been considering doing this too. I'll be interested in seeing what you decide to read.
