these biographies that will make great reading gifts and
are available on Amazon.com if you
are running out of 'what to buy' time
Best Selling Presidential Reads
John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the second and third presidents of the United States rarely agreed on anything together but books and ideas.
Adam's on reading, “I read my eyes out and can't read half enough...the more one reads the more one sees we have to read.”
Jefferson - "I cannot live without books; but fewer will suffice where amusement, and not use, is the only future object."
Courageous WWII Reads
For WWII buffs these are a must read! Unbroken was a book club favorite and comes highly recommended. Read the amazing story of Louis Zamperini from his troubled childhood, an Olympian, soldier, POW and life after the war. This is one biography not to be missed!
A best seller, The Wright Brothers by author David McCullough, is an 'enjoyable - fast paced' biography of Wilbur and Orville Wright's courage and determination to be the first inventors of the flying machine even if it means their death.
It's 1914 and Ernest Shackleton, the polar explorer, and his crew of 27 find themselves with more than they bargained for in their exploration of Antarctica. A ship that is stuck in immovable ice and dwindling supplies. Check out Endurance a nail biting icy adventure!
Dads, Book Club and Poker?
Bring your book, don't forget the beer & snacks and let's play book club poker! Men may not typically get together and have three hour plus book discussions but do like the idea of combining a great read while doing something else they love and why not a poker game? During my own personal polling of my guy friends that is exactly what my research revealed. Men don't want a lengthy book talk (not all anyway) just casual chill time to talk about the latest read and doing something else at the same time. Keep it simple with one foot in the book world and another playing a card game. It's a win win.
