February Books 17) The Presidential Book of Lists, by Ian Randal Strock

I admit to buying just one or two books at Boskone, but this was the only non-sf book to add to my catalogue. Well, if anyone should ever assert that my own interest in presidential trivia is in any way peculiar, I can point to ianrandalstrock's wonderful ranking of presidents ordered by how many states joined the Union during their terms of office (top spot goes to the otherwise obscure Benjamin Harrison, with six) and other superb lists including how many of them were outlived by one (Polk, Garfield, Harding) or both (Kennedy) of their own parents. Anyone who loves presidential trivia will love this book. (This may not be a huge market.)
