The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt

The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris is a masterpiece. (That's probably why it won a Pulitzer...) The smooth flow and colorful vocabulary make it a captivating and truly enjoyable story. It was fascinating as a historical narrative as well; I've read a number of books about TR, and this book was dense with facts new and interesting to me.

Spring Forward

Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time is a history of the most confusing American tradition and its mind-bending side effects. It is loaded with facts but is a surprisingly light read, which makes it both informative and fun.
