Presidential Book Project

In May 2017, I was struck by a thought while listing to an episode of RadioLab. That thought? I know so little about most of our U.S. presidents, other than the basic fact they taught us in school. My solution? Read a book about each one. This is my quest for the foreseeable future, and this is the quest log.
