October 29, 2018 3:44 p.m.

Are you feeling a little unprepared for midterm elections? Do you wish you had a little more time to dive into the research and history you feel is necessary to make an informed decision? Most people wish they had the time to read more — so if you had the option to tackle your reading by simply listening in to your selected books, we bet you’d take it. This Audible 60-Day Free Trial with 2 Audiobooks lets you go through your entire reading list, even if you’re on the go — and we’ve selected five presidential audiobooks to get you ready for the next round of midterms.

1. One Nation Under God

This historical examination of America’s roots as a Christian nation is written by Kevin M. Kruse, a professor of history at Princeton. It delves into the growing influence of religion in politics, beginning with opposition to FDR’s New Deal in the 1930’s, through to mainstream acceptance of America as a “Christian Nation” during the Eisenhower presidency.

2. White House Diary

Consisting of President Jimmy Carter reading you his diary entries, this audiobook is a peek into the world of presidency day by day: from sudden, whirlwind crises to trying to execute long-term plans.

3. Louisa

Don’t discredit the First Lady: this audiobook looks at the impact of Louisa Adams on John Quincy Adams’ political rise.

4. Nixon in Winter

A political enigma, this intimate look at Richard Nixon comes from the perspective of his former assistant.

5. Most Blessed of the Patriarchs

How do you combine respect for the past and tradition with a healthy approach towards modern needs? Thomas Jefferson is the subject of this audiobook, written by some of the best historical writers in the business.
