My Favorite Presidential Biographies


President’s Day makes me think of the many fascinating men who’ve held the office–and of the books about them I’ve read. But first, I must tell you I’m a serious collector of books on both Roosevelts and a less serious one on books on Kennedy and Lincoln–both of those collections were begun with book inherited from my paternal grandmother.

Here then are my choices:


For the record, Mornings on Horseback by David McCullough is my favorite. Another day, I’ll post my favorite First Lady biographies–I collect on them as well.

Happy President’s Day
