June 16 – 2016 Reading challenge
Book # 8 – A Thousand Days by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
Definitely not breaking any speed reading records with this year’s challenge. Pretty sure I’m not going to make 52 books!
I did finish Zen Pencils 2 and it was pretty good. I may look for the first one in the library because I think I could handle it in two weeks 🙂
On to Book 8:
This will fulfill my Political Memoir category. It is over 1000 pages so I know it will take me some time but I have always loved stories about the Kennedy’s and this seems to be written in a way that is not strictly about politics, but also about the human side. At least the first few chapters have been easy reading so far. Mr. Schlesinger was Special Assistant to the President so he was privy to a lot of the personal behind the scenes happenings in the Kennedy White House years. Since this is an election year, reading about the steps leading up to electing the President is kind of interesting as well.
Wish me luck!
