John Quincy Adams

This poll will examine the choices for the John Quincy Adams reading selection which will be the next President covered in the Presidential Series. The order for the Presidents selected was determined by the group membership.

This selection will begin January 9, 2012 and will continue for three - four months - depending upon the length of the selection. The Bill Clinton selection will take a long time so rather than begin this selection around Christmas or other important religious or family holidays, we are waiting until January 9, 2012 to begin the John Quincy Adams selection.

This discussion will be led by Bryan. Bryan has an extraordinary background and will be a great moderator to lead this discussion. He has assumed the responsibilities for the Presidential Series reads and will be leading these book discussions.

We have added all of the books nominated on the John Quincy Adams thread and a few others. However, if you do not see your favorite book on this list; then just comment or pop me a note and I will immediately add it to this poll.

You can always change your vote at any time; so nothing is lost. Some of the John Quincy Adams's books deal with only a certain period of his life, some may be multi-volume (if that is ever the case - I always add both separately), some deal with other topics too; some are all encompassing, others deal with specific events in Quincy Adam's life or presidency and others are by the man, himself and some may be about other relationships or focused on specific issues during his life or presidency.

Before making your selection, please try to look up your choice and make sure it really is a book you are interested in; do not be lured in by the title. Also, check out the author and what others have said about the book before you (reviewers who you trust). Then of course, make your selection.

Bentley

Note: Be careful when making your selection: a great many of these books have the same title (John Quincy Adams) so be careful to make the right choice.
