I guess you should say that I am a huge history buff. I enjoy learning about events and connecting them to the present day. Click here to see the On This Day in History website. You can even see old issues of The New York Times, which is pretty cool. It’s interesting to look at this site at random sometimes, just to see what happened in the past.
The book Family History by Dani Shapiro is told through a series of flashbacks and readers learn about the history of a teenage girls distraught life growing up. This is a very powerful book that I strongly recommend – you will learn something about history at the same time.
