Happy Presidents' Day!

Happy Presidents' Day!  


While the United States is taking a holiday to celebrate our presidents, great and not-so, past and present, we thought we'd share a handful of presidential books for you to browse today.



 Team of Rivals is the definitive biography on Abraham Lincoln, and well worth the read.  Check out our review: http://www.readingforsanity.blogspot.com/2013/04/team-of-rivals-doris-kearns-goodwin.html


David McCullough seems to be the man responsible for mainstreaming the biography.  Check out our review of his classic work John Adams:  http://readingforsanity.blogspot.com/2012/07/john-adams-david-mccullough.html


This one's for the kids.  Full of fun facts about our presidents, including facts about how to become one, this is a great read for a day like today.  http://readingforsanity.blogspot.com/2014/02/so-you-want-to-be-president-judith-st.html


Garfield may only be remembered as one of our shortest-termed presidents, but Destiny of the Republic will make his story unforgettable. It'll also make you grateful for hand sanitizer.  In fact, I'm having surgery today ... I'm not going to read this one again for a while.  But it's still a good book!  http://readingforsanity.blogspot.com/2012/12/destiny-of-republic-tale-of-madness.html

There are always the classics: the Federalist Papers, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Other non Presidential but presidential thoughts include those of noted constitutionalists such as Benjamin Franklin. Have fun with these golden oldies.
