Theodore Roosevelt's Reading List - Page 2

While Roosevelt was renowned for his ability to direct his full attention to a book, he was not at all opposed to the idea of skimming when necessary. Below you'll find a list that Theodore Roosevelt sent to a friend in its entirety. Peruse it, use it for your own reading life, and enjoy. You'll find everything from Greek history and tragedy, to the dramas of Shakespeare, to modern popular novels, and treatises on the outdoors. He noted in his letter that he had read over half of these titles multiple times – an incredible feat in its own right.
