#historySticksToYourFeet that is unless your a time traveler. #tuneintonovember

GypsyKat This is such a fun series! 2y
Sace I had a lot of fun with this series and I really loved these covers. 2y
TamarackTrail My niece wanted this series for Christmas. Is it appropriate for an 11 year old? 2y

LibrarianRyan @TamarackTrail I think so. A girl gets her first kiss but that is about it. I have only read the first book. I don't remember anything standing out as too old. 2y
TamarackTrail @LibrarianRyan thanks a lot. The cover I found looked like it would be for an older age so I was hesitant. She's definitely a future Litsy user, so it's hard for me to keep up with her "already read" pile ? 2y
LibrarianRyan @TamarackTrail the paper back have the girls in dresses that does make it look older. If I remember the main character is about 15. I hope she likes them. I loved the first one and wasn't expecting to. 2y

Geoffrey Blainey coined the term “black armband view of history” and has been a conservative voice in Australia‘s History Wars. This book is certainly an old white man‘s version of events, but it sounds quite rigorous too. I‘ll be interested to read it. #historystickstoyourfeet #tuneintonovember

Cinfhen How‘s your son feeling today?!? 2y
Abailliekaras @Cinfhen he‘s much better thank you! Still wanting another day off school but u think he‘s half scamming just to watch tv (= a good sign)! 2y
Abailliekaras *i think 2y
Cinfhen Definitely a BIG sign of improvement 💖🙌🏻😘glad he's ok!!!! 2y

I know this has nothing to do with #historystickstoyourfeet but Aunt Sticky Feet came to mind today for this one today. She was an elder so she probably knew a lot of the history of her tribe. 😅

Cinfhen That's hilarious 😂 2y

JoRead It's horrible what women had (and in some instances still do) to do in order to be found suitable for marriage 😡😱 2y
BarbaraBB What a book! Great choice -despite what it is about! 2y
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads @DebinHawaii @JoRead @BarbaraBB I know! It‘s quite something, isn‘t it? 😬 2y
LeahBergen @Leftcoastzen Yes! I actually bought a little old pair at an antique shop in Asia. 2y

#TuneIntoNovember #HistorySticksToYourFeet History may stick to your feet but it definitely sticks in my stomach.😋When I looked for books with 'history' in their title or subtitle I had quite a few-the bulk of them related to food. My culinary geek side loves learning about the history behind different foods & drinks, cuisines, why we eat what we do & even what historical figures ate. Some of these I've read & others are in my #TBR stacks. 🍽📚💙

Cortg The History of the World in Six Glasses was interesting. 2y
Cinfhen You must have the BEST cookbook collection EVER!!! LOVE this collage😍😋 2y

I think Richard Engel would agree that #HistorySticksToYourFeet This book is on my Kindle #tbr. I really want to get to this soon. #tuneintonovember

Melissa_J I‘ve got this one on my TBR too. 2y
AmyG I watch him on TV. He is a wonderful journalist. Our joke is, since he travels to many dangerous places, that his mother must be a nervous wreck. ;) 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @AmyG haha! We have the same kind of joke here! Of course Richard is there, it‘s the worst place to be in the world right now. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I read this one and his other one last year, there‘s some overlap, but definitely worth it. 2y
Cinfhen This is on my TBR too! 2y

An oldie but a goodie. Wild Swans tells the story of three generations of Chinese women - from a concubine with bound feet, to a member of the Communist party, to a Red Guard who is sent to live as a peasant in the Cultural Revolution. Each generation is affected by the one before and their #historystickstotheirfeet

This is a classic of bio/memoir writing. And a page turner!

Robothugs This sounds good! 2y
Oryx Fantastic book. I learned so much from it, and at the same time, as you say, a real page turner 2y
