#HappyBirthday Abe!  As you know, Lincoln was an avid reader, spending many nights up late reading with a #book in one hand, a candle in the other. He taught himself, becoming the consummate autodidact. Here are 5 books #AbrahamLincoln would call his favorite:

1. The Bible

2. Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe

3. Elements of Character by Mary Chandler

4. Commentaries on the Law by William Blackstone

5.Poems by Williams Knox.

And the list goes on and on.  #OTD #Birthday #President #History
