*This title was an impulse or recommendation and moved ahead of my “Next up” title already in the queue.
(Bettyville, George Hodgman)
To ensure I read all of the presidents before I am 90-something, I have begun to read one presidential biography in between each category. That means I will read three in a row after #4, and if I choose one as “My personal choice,” I would in fact be reading five of them in a row.
(James Monroe: The Quest for National Identity, Harry Ammon)
