Sometimes I feel like the only person I know who finds reading history fascinating. It’s so full of amazing-yet-true stories of people driven to the edge and how they reacted to it. I keep telling friends that a good history book (as opposed to some of those textbooks in school that are all lists and dates) does everything a good novel does–it grips you with real characters doing amazing things.
Am I REALLY the only person who feels this way? When is the last time you read a history book? Historical biography? You know, something that took place in the past but was REAL.
Not all history is boring but I’ve not ready any lately that wasn’t boring. Now, a good historical romance might be nice! But it’s hard to find, or at least I find it hard to find good, engaging true-history. I used to though, being history was my other main passion in school… If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears.
