Historical Reads
 
I love reading historical books... My favorite book is definitely, Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky... I find it so intriguing to read about historical events in the context of salt and its historical influence.

Anyone else into these kinds of books and have any recommendations?

Sounds like an interesting book JustADream21. I read the reviews on it and plan to look it up the next time I go to the library.

I like reading history books or watching the history channel. You learn so much. It's been awhile though since I've read a history book.

Family history has become really interesting for me lately. My hubby's uncle has been working on Genealogy report for his part of the family. While I was search files to gather my family information for him, I came across something written by my great uncle and it dates back to the early 1800's.

So I've started a family tree. I'm hoping to gather information from all sides of our family to add to the tree. I can't afford to pay for one of those Family Genealogy searches, so I've been asking different people in the family to gather information for me.

I've learned so much already and I think it will be a great way to share some history with my family and grandchildren.
