FBC Poll: who is your political figure?

For the FBC 15-point task to read a fiction or non-fiction book about a political figure, what are you reading and who is it about?  I absolutely cannot pick someone, lol.

Re: FBC Poll: who is your political figure?

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. It happens to be a book that I have for another book discussion on 10/3, so it works out perfectly.

  • Might pick up an Alison Weir book?  I'm thinking historical fiction might be the way to go for me because I am usually not a big fan of non-fiction political books.  That, or I might read a biography of one of the early presidents.  I know Jacki has reviewed a ton on her blog for her Presidential Challenge and I usually like books she enjoys so maybe I'll just pick from her list?

  • I highly, highly recommend John Adams by David McCullough. It's long, but so worth it.

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter too. I got it as a wedding present from someone who knew me and the husband well. He has listened to it already so now I can enjoy the book.

  • I have been wanting to read a bio on the Queen or Prince Philip for a while now. I think I will do one of those.

    Oooh, that sounds good.  I just read Georgiana:  Duchess of Devonshire, so I could just jump forward a couple hundred years (lol) and play off that.

  • I was thinking about using a book I'm currently reading (But I'm not 50% done with so I think I can still use it for FBC) called Domestic Affairs.  It is about the presidential campaign of Fictional Governor, Landon Taylor's presidential campaign. 

     

    Do you all think this is okay or does it need to be a real living or dead political figure

    I thought it was supposed to  be a real person. 

    I'm still undecided on what to read. I read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter last month and really liked it.

  • Well thats fine. I thought fictional was okay, but I can do a real person. I'll either do Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter or possibly a nonfiction. I have a few nonfictions that I need to read, including one about Mitt Romney so I may go that route.

  • Lord John Grey is a political figure, right? Stick out tongue

    In all honesty, I'll probably use Madame Tussaud (I think this is political?) or 1776 by David McCullough. Possibly Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee or Cleopatra's Daughter. The jury is still out.

  • "Read a fiction or non-fiction book about a political figure."

    I didn't interpret that to mean that it had to be a real person.

    I just picked up the audiobook from the library for this and realized it's the abridged version. D'oh!

    But while I was there, I saw they had the (unabridged) audiobook for The King's Speech so I'll swap them out.

  • I think I'm going for ALVH too. I've had it forever and keep putting off reading it.
