Today’s question:

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
My answer:
Ironically I commented on a blogging buddy’s post yesterday regarding her love of this genre and how much I respected her.  I, for one do not enjoy reading books of this period.  The dialogue is hard for me to understand and it reminds me of when I was in school and it was mandatory reading.  Maybe someday when I get caught up…lol…with my tbr bookcase….I just might try reading one from that era again and I know exactly who I will go to for advice.  And that will be Bev from My Reader’s Block
