#booksandcoffee Early morning checkup with blood work at the doctor‘s office this morning meant our #booksandcoffee was breakfast today. I have made it to 16th century France so far😊

This week has been crazy, and our#booksandcoffee date is usually earlier in the week. But we decided we really needed our favorite time together. Nice way to start a Friday!

I‘m continuing my study of European history to complement what I learned as a music history major. Thanks to @RamsFan1963 and the gift card I won in his giveaway, I got this book that was recommended as a follow up to the Renaissance history that I read last. However, I can‘t remember the last time I saw a book with print this small 😄 I will be reading this for a long time.

Gezemice Great choice! My book on the Wars of the Roses was also very small print. Deceiving! Must be a marketing thing for history books. 2mo
RamsFan1963 @Lynnsoprano I'm so glad you found a good book to use your gift card on. 2mo
Crazeedi I love my world history and European history classes in college, and American history. Let's just say I love history. Period. 2mo

Lynnsoprano @Crazeedi So do I. It‘s been something I‘ve concentrated on since I retired. My masters degree is in music history, and I‘m trying to bring my knowledge of political and cultural history up to the level of my music history knowledge. I‘ve read the Susan Wise Bauers medieval and Renaissance histories, so it‘s time to move to early modern Europe 😄 (edited) 2mo
Crazeedi @Lynnsoprano all of it is so interesting, and also very important to understand the past 2mo
arubabookwoman I was a music history major too! (Many years ago). But then I went to law school. A group of friends and I have been getting together weekly for several years to teach ourselves art history, and picking up quite a bit of “regular” history along the way. 2mo
Lynnsoprano @arubabookwoman I‘ve surprised myself to discover how much “regular” history I picked up with the music history. Plus, one of my professors strongly recommended taking an art history survey, which was one of the smartest things I did. Studying history has been on of my retirement “don‘t let your brain turn to mush “ projects. 2mo
