“The past is an inheritance, a gift and a burden. It can‘t be shirked. You carry it everywhere. There‘s nothing for it but to get to know it.”

Finalllyyy starting this series, but being the weird history buff bookworm I‘m starting it in chronological order. Also I‘m obsessed with learning about royal families from their origins to the present. I‘m also procrastinating because i don‘t want to do anything but read this book. 😁#theladyoftherivers #bookworm #historybuff

My son has been DEVOURING these graphic novels by Nathan Hale. He LOVES the history behind each story and has been very knowingly telling me all about The Great War for the last twenty minutes.#LoveIt #MyLittleReader #HistoryBuff

AmandaL My son liked these books too! 👍 2y

New reading goal: read a bio for each Canadian Prime Minister. These should get me started! Leave any recommendations for prime ministerial bios below! #canada150 #historybuff #readingchallenges

twohectobooks This is a good idea! I only have a Mackenzie King one on my TBR at the moment but I may end up adding some others now that I've had this inspiration from you ahaha. 2y
ashleyv @twohectobooks Yeah! I was kind of disheartened when I realized that I'd read several US Presidential bios and not a single Canadian Prime Ministers. 2y
twohectobooks Know what you mean. I found you through the #canada150 tag: this year's reading project for me is that all the non-fiction I read is Canada related, so I'm looking for ideas. 2y

Melissa_J Is there any particular time period you are looking for recs on? 3y
BooknBooktastic @Melissa_J no! I am interested in all! Currently watching tudors and loving that time period but open to all!! 3y
Melissa_J @BooknBooktastic for WWI-era I recommend The Last Summer by Judith Kinghorn or The Passing Bells by Phillip Rock. Early-to-mid 20th Century Texas I recommend Roses by Leila Meacham. 3y
Melissa_J @BooknBooktastic oh, and for Civil War-era I loved John Jakes' North & South trilogy. 3y

On to the next book! I devoured The Winter Palace, so I'm looking forward to returning to Russia for Catherine the Great's next chapters. This is where it's going to get good! (Here comes the Empress!) #historicalfiction #russia #catherinethegreat #bookworm #historybuff #empressofthenight #thewinterpalace
