Farewell Addresses of the Presidents of the United States
Farewell Addresses of the Presidents of the United States collects ten addresses delivered by departing presidents, from George Washington in 1796 to Barack Obama in 2017. The book was published the day following President Obama's farewell speech in Chicago on January 10, 2017. George Washington's farewell address set the standard for speeches delivered by departing leaders of the United States, and has been followed by nine subsequent presidents. President Washington's address has been so respected and influential, that it has been read aloud in the Senate chamber each year since 1896. In it, Washington gave his view of the Union, the Constitution, and good citizenship. The ten presidential farewell addresses gathered here - Washington (1796); Andrew Jackson (1837); Andrew Johnson (1869); Harry S Truman (1953); Dwight D. Eisenhower (1961); Jimmy Carter (1981); Ronald Reagan (1989); Bill Clinton (2001); George W. Bush (2009); and Barack Obama (2017) - provide a revealing look at our country's leaders, their view of their legacies, and their visions for the future.

1,000 Books to Read Before You Die Tan Genuine Leather
Celebrate the pleasure of reading and the thrill of discovering new titles in an extraordinary book that's as compulsively readable, entertaining, surprising and enlightening as the 1,000-plus titles it recommends.
Covering fiction, poetry, science and science fiction, memoir, travel writing, biography, children's books, history and more, 1,000 Books to Read Before You Die ranges across cultures and through time to offer an eclectic collection of works that each deserve to come with the recommendation, "you have to read this." But it's not a proscriptive list of the "great works"--rather, it's a celebration of the glorious mosaic that is our literary heritage.
Flip it open to any page and be transfixed by a fresh take on a very favorite book. Or come across a title you always meant to read and never got around to. Or, like browsing in the best kind of bookshop, stumble on a completely unknown author and work, and feel that tingle of discovery. There are classics, of course, and unexpected treasures too. Lists to help pick and choose, like Offbeat Escapes, or A Long Climb, but What a View. And its alphabetical arrangement by author assures that surprises await on almost every turn of the page, with Cormac McCarthy and The Road next to Robert McCloskey and Make Way for Ducklings, Alice Walker next to Izaac Walton.
There are nuts and bolts, too—best editions to read, other books by the author, “if you like this, you’ll like that” recommendations , and an interesting endnote of adaptations where appropriate. Add it all up, and in fact there are more than six thousand titles by nearly four thousand authors mentioned—a life-changing list for a lifetime of reading.
