Well Read?

I thought I was doing pretty good at being well read, until I read through The Lion's Pride, a book about Theodore Roosevelt and his family. In it, the author informed, among plenty of other things, that Theodore liked to read 4 or 5 books a day.

He would also scrawl his name in them and put them up on a shelf. His sons gave them away during the War (The Great One, WW1) to fellow soldiers, so now there are plenty of mid-western attics with a book that once belonged to Theodore Roosevelt.

Four or five a day is more than I can handle. I thought I was doing good with one or two a week.

Here are the ones I am working on now:
