Awesome Books to Replace Your Favorite Cancelled TV Shows

A lovely history book (even for people who don't usually read history books) about a number of famous historic women, and how traditional history has misrepresented their lives.

35 Things To Do With All Those Books. I hope you know my house will have every single one of these.....

ESSENTIAL science-fiction reading list, though I contend all of Douglas Adams is required.

A young, and very pretty, Catherine of Aragon, first wife of Henry VIII. Catherine was the youngest daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain -- the ones who bankrolled Columbus. From the time she was very young, she knew that she would marry the English prince and become Queen of England. How devastating it must have been when Arthur, Henry's older brother, died so young. Lost and alone in a strange country -- I can't imagine how she must have felt. So was it really true that she and Arthu...

In the Kingdom of Men by Kim Barnes

Holocaust read.

By Morris Gleitzman Want this one!

Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project is a book about Irena Sendler's inspiring story and students from rural Kansas who discovered this hero from the Holocaust.

"These eyewitness accounts are powerful, detailed and horrifying. Of particular note is the last chapter, in which some of the veterans record what happened to them after the war; decades later, many still struggled with nightmares and rage." –USA Today "Never forget is the message that these vets and survivors carry to schools, churches, and synagogues, and other places…Hirsh’s The Liberators helps [them] carry on that important work." –Philadelphia Inquirer

The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery by Eric Foner. #Kobo #eBook

*add this to my reading list* The Black History of the White House by Clarence Lusane. For many Americans, the White House stands as a symbol of liberty and justice. But its gleaming facade hides harsh realities, from the slaves who built the home to the presidents who lived there and shaped the country's racial history, often for the worse. In The Black History of the White House, Clarence Lusane traces the path of race relations in America by telling a very specific history — the stories of those African-Americans who built, worked at and visited the White House.

Another book that really intrigued me about the possibility of it all. . . "fascinating story of the final days of Nicholas and Alexandra as seen through the eyes of the Romanovs’ young kitchen boy, Leonka. Now an ancient Russian immigrant, Leonka claims to be the last living witness to the Romanovs’ brutal murders and sets down the dark secrets of his past with the imperial family. Does he hold the key to the many questions surrounding the family’s murder? Historically vivid and compelling.

BRAVE...Nujood Ali because she, at the mere age of 10 years old, bravely fought and won against cultural and religious marriages in a country where that fight is particularly unwelcome and dangerous. And then wrote about it, which is astronomically awesome.
