We’re in the midst of a presidential transition. If recent history holds, we’ll soon be getting books from both the outgoing and incoming presidents.
The Office of the President of the United States is respected by every nation on earth. Respected doesn’t mean friendly. Only 44 men (I know we’ll elect a woman soon!) have held the highest office in the nation. The US is currently a country with a population nearing 350 million. Still, only 44.
So one could say there’s an exclusive book club that you can’t just join. You have to be voted in by tens of millions of people. I’ve still never read a book written by a president, but that changes this year. It’s a requirement for my reading challenge!
What’s the best book written by a president you’ve read?

Profiles in Courage has been on my “to read” list forever. I need to get around to it.
Definitely one of the ones I’m considering, though I’m also thinking of Decision Points because it was the first presidency I was old enough to really experience.
