Week 32 - Book 33

Week 32 - Book 33

Today is the start of Week 32 in the quest to read 52 books in 52 weeks and should have you starting book # 33. We are more than halfway through the year and halfway towards our goal of reading 52 books for the year.

I came across this wonderful project today started by Lezlie of Books and Border Collies. She created this website - U.S. Presidents Reading Project which has a list of all the presidents and links to suggested lists of books to read more about them. There is also a link on the site to the white house with mini biographies on each president.

The rules are easy:

1. Read at least one non-fiction book about each of the U.S. Presidents
2. Take as much time as you need
3. Have fun learning about U.S. history and its leaders

I had planned on doing a U.S. Presidents Unit Study with James for this year and this comes at an opportune time. It sound much more fun and interesting, we'll draw it out a bit, rather than condense the information and we'll turn into a family reading project, concentrating on one president at a time without a time limit. I am so stoked and looking forward to reading and learning more about the presidents.

Check out the U.S. Presidents Reading Project for yourself.
