Did You Know

 Did you know, after John Adams retired from the presidency he took to reading (and enjoyed) romantic poems and novels, of the day, such as Lady of the Lake, by Walter Scott and Scottish Chiefs by Jane Porter

Oh that someone else didn't do that when your election result was known.

Good for him. A spot of good reading might help Trump!

I am so glad he did. And suspect he enjoyed his retirement.

That’s great that he loved to read especially books like what you mention.

This I did not know, Sandra. I'm familiar with the "Lady of the Lake" by SWS, but not "Scottish Chiefs" by Jane Porter. I'll have to track it down, because my ancestry is is a roll call of the clans.
