I just finished reading The President’s Club and I really enjoyed it. I’m fascinated by any history related to the Oval Office and this was a fun book to read. It was so interesting to find out which presidents worked well together and which ones despised each other. I ended up with some new perspectives and found a greater respect for some of the men, but also lost a little for some others. I read it on my iPad using the kindle app, but I’m going to order a physical copy to keep. When I really like a book, I want to have it on my shelf – and I think my son will really like reading it. There are a few really big swear words in the book (most came from Richard Nixon who is kind of notorious for that type of language) but other than that, I think it’s something that would be appropriate for older teens (maybe around 16 and up?) and adults.
I have a few other books on my “to read” list:
- Pride and Prejudice – my daughter is reading this for school and I want to refresh my memory of this book. I did a semester study on Jane Austen in college and enjoyed her writing quite a bit. I thought it was super cool that my mom recently read this book so she could talk to Riley about it. Extra Grandma bonus points for her!
- Healthy at 100 – another book that my daughter is reading as part of her nutrition class at school. It sounds really interesting. She said “we shouldn’t let Dad read it because we will never be able to eat again” – lol! She’s sort of right since my hubby is passionate about eating right, but he’s such a good example about taking nutrition seriously that I really admire his dedication.
- The Racketeer by John Grisham – My mom is reading this right now and said it’s actually good. I was so excited to hear this since his last few books have been disappointing. She said I can borrow it when she is done.
What’s on your reading list? Any good recommendations for me? Have you read any of the books that are on my list?
