 A Weekly Meme Hosted by Booking Through Thursday 

Sometimes I feel like the only person I know who finds reading history fascinating. It’s so full of amazing-yet-true stories of people driven to the edge and how they reacted to it. I keep telling friends that a good history book (as opposed to some of those textbooks in school that are all lists and dates) does everything a good novel does–it grips you with real characters doing amazing things.
Am I REALLY the only person who feels this way? When is the last time you read a history book? Historical biography? You know, something that took place in the past but was REAL.

I do find it interesting but rarely read it. I probably would if it was by me and someone or something I was interested in. I do study Christian history and theology, and enjoy studying (a little bit) on Psychology, English, Literature, and Herbalism. So, this doesn't strike me as weird at all :)
