Today‘s book question :

What time frame do you enjoy reading about ? If you don‘t like NF history or historical fiction, then is there a time frame you prefer ? Like modern day, maybe the 1970s, 1950s.....1930s......

Please repost with a book you enjoyed from that time frame.

Thanks ! Keep it up, you guys are doing great.

Crazeedi To tell the truth, I read books from all time periods, I love the Tudor and Elizabethan periods, but I dont limit myself. Right now I'm reading this, @ljuliel 6d
TheEllieMo @Crazeedi I read from all time periods too, but the early to mid 16th century holds a special fascination for me for non-fiction. 6d
Crazeedi @TheEllieMo it's a wild period! 6d

DrexEdit Great question! I'll read any time frame if it's a good story. I mostly tend to read NF by topic, and it's usually science-heavy. That said I do like ancient Rome. Reading the tagged book now. 6d
Andrew65 @DrexEdit That‘s a book I want to read. 6d

EadieB I like to read about The Revolutionary War Period - 1770 (Boston Tea Party) thru 1776 - (Signing of Declaration of Independence). 6d
Andrew65 @EadieB I really need to read more about this period, been interested in some of Steve Berry‘s writing about this period. 6d
EadieB @Andrew65 I think I told you this before but I really enjoyed this biography of George Washington as it also included a lot about The Revolutionary War 6d
CoffeeCatsBooks My favorite is Ancient Rome. I love Robert Harris‘ Cicero series. 6d
Andrew65 @EadieB Thanks for the reminder. I also want to read his book on Alexander Hamilton. 6d
EadieB @Andrew65 I own that one too! Definitely like this period of early US Presidents and Cabinet. 6d
Andrew65 @CoffeeCatsBooks Rome books are among my favourites, and Roman Britain. Love Robert Harris books, the Cicero series and Pompeii book too. Also love the books by Ben Kane and Anthony Riches. 6d
Andrew65 @EadieB It is definitely a period for me to explore further. 6d
CoffeeCatsBooks I liked his Pompeii book too. I‘m not familiar with the The Forgotten Legion, so I‘ll add that to my TBR pile! 6d
Andrew65 @CoffeeCatsBooks I love that trilogy, as well as his Hannibal and Spartacus books. 6d
kwmg40 I don't have a favourite time period, as I find all of them interesting in their own ways. However, your choice of book for this blurb reminded me that I really loved Margaret MacMillan's Paris 1919. It was so informative and well written. 6d
Andrew65 @kwmg40 Sounds great. 5d

Important and necessary reading for right now. While at times repetitive with ideas and quotes, the writing is impassioned and researched. Let the resistance continue.

If racism is understood not just as an affair of the heart but about material advantage and personal comfort, then the remedy is much different because it means it will cost something to alter.

By making racism only about bombing, blocking, and spitting, the nation gets off easy.

Silence is comfortable. “It is easier to cast protesters as reckless and dangerous than face the comfort and cruel convenience of those on the sidelines of injustice.” Do not be silent.

“And besides, it is easier to build monuments/Than to build a better world.” Damn.
