I should be studying for a Biology final, but that is boring! Therefore, it is time for another segment of History from the Web!
I received an email today from HNN.us (History News Network), with a subject line which said the following:
Best History Book of 2012?
This is definitely not spam, and I was glad to open this one. (Not to say that most of their email is spam…) You might remember that earlier in the year, I wrote an article about HNN’s Least Credible History Books. With so little time, this list was appreciated as I didn’t desire to waste my time reading “least credible” books. I was glad to see that they were putting out a list with the best history books of 2012. This way I know what I need to be reading. There are only so many books that one can read in a lifetime…
All this being said, today is the last day to suggest a “Best History Book of 2012″
Here is the text so you can click through and nominate your favorite book!
Once you do that, jump over to The History Vault and play a game of Guess Who! No, thank goodness it isn’t the children’s. There are five historical women portrayed in pictures. Can you guess who they are? I could not complete the list, and I believe that no one else has… so go check it out!
Last but not least for today is a Pearl Harbor article. On the day of such a significant events in history, I generally don’t write about them. There are so many others–some better that I–writing about the topic, I like to read what they write. Out of all the Pearl Harbor pieces that I read, I can highly recommend Belle Grove Plantation’s We Will Never Forget.
