Booking Through Thursday


Booking Through Thursday

When is the last time you read a history book? Historical Biography? You know something that took place in the past but was real.

Gateway To The Clouds by Alan Sweeney
About the Short Line Railroad, The Scranton, Dunmore, and Moosic Lake railway in Pa.

My favorite genre is historical fiction, but these true history books are very interesting.

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog!

    I might have to try reading more historical books. I've always been more of a paranormal/ fantasy kind of person.

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I must say I don't read much historical fiction but it's usually easier to read than most true history books.
