Eva Reads About James Monroe

I’m back, finally, with more PRESIDENTIAL UPDATES. Today:

James Monroe: A Life Tim McGrath

I really enjoyed this one. It took me a while to access the audio, hence the delay in continuing this series, but this was a great book. I liked James Monroe as a person better than I expected (barring the slave-holding part). He struck me as a capable president and he had a fascinating, eventful life.

I should have written this post when the book was fresh in my mind, but alas, my executive dysfunction dictated otherwise. I do recommend it though! I’m also going to schedule the next post about John Quincy Adams RIGHT NOW, because I am being PRODUCTIVE.

Eva was born in Jacksonville, Florida. She left that humidity pit at the age of three and spent the next twenty-one years in California, Idaho, Kentucky, and Washington before ending up in Oregon, where she now lives on a homestead in the western foothills with her husband and five children, two of whom are human.
