U.S. Presidents Project

Seal of the President of the United States

As I was working on my wrap-up post for Bloggiesta this past weekend, I realized there is one more personal challenge I want to share with you. I’m not sure calling this a challenge is quite appropriate, though it certainly will be a challenge. This is more like a long-term project. I hope to work my way through the U.S. Presidents and read at least one book about each. This book may be a biography, and autobiograhy, or even a book about his (or her???) presidency or the events that occurred during the presidency. It may also include a book authored by a president, or I branch off to read about the respective lady. I am not restricting myself to only one book per president.

All of that is to say that this is not ‘challenge’ that I have any expectation of completing in 2016, or even 2017! In fact, I expect this project to extend many years, possibly decades. I will be tracking my progress, so if you are interested at any time, just check on the ‘U. S. Presidents Project’ tab above.

And if you have a recommendation for a book that will fit in with this project, definitely leave me a comment about it! Thanks!

  1. That's an interesting challenge, Kim. I know there was a book recently published about George and Martha Washington. It's called (had to go look it up) The Washingtons: George and Martha 'Join'd by Friendship, Crown'd by Love'. And that's all I know about it. LOL

  2. Great project! I'm excited to see what you pick up for this one :)
