Sometime in February 2010, after becoming frustrated by the process of  choosing one book out of the 144,000 books at the library, I decided on an easier way to make my book selections.  The A. K. Smiley Public Library has a wonderful biography section located in the basement.  The books are sorted in alphabetical order by the last name of the subject.  So, I started with "AAA," and after I finish each book, I return to the stacks and move down to the next biography that grabs my attention.  After 6 1/2 years I finally reached the end of the alphabetical line.  In August 2016 I started reading the biographies of each U. S. President and one year later I had read biographies of all 44 past Presidents.  A book about Trump is still being written.  So now I'm back to the alphabetical process of book selection for the second round.

Here's what I've read to date.
