In this supplemental video, we’re tackling some books on how we create history from culture, religion, geopolitics, and socioeconomics. You know, a bunch of light and fluffy stuff. Oh, and all of them were ones I had expectations for going in that weren’t met for some reason. It’s a doozy!
Literally nobody but me might be interested in this mix of history and academic texts, but that’s okay. I’m starting to build my PhD library and this is the tiny beginning!
I was tagged by the lovely Josh from Literary Gladiators to do this tag in this video: https://youtu.be/_IbEKS3WQs4 This tag was originally created by Kari from Very Literary Kari, in this video: https://youtu.be/xEXZByQulIc. I did not tag anyone because I don’t know anyone other than Josh who would be interested in this Presidential history tag. If you want to go for it, consider yourself invited!
Trying out something a little bit different today with a list of books I couldn’t stop talking about on the road trip vacation I took recently with my partner, complete with some trip pictures!
At this point, my love of NPR and the Politics Podcast is no secret. My feelings about this book, though? Not … so lovely. Please give me book recs to read more!
I actually enjoyed and would recommend all 5 of these books, and I think that’s the first time I can say that. However, I will mention that I am ill in this video (like I’d literally gone to urgent care the morning I filmed this) (I am fine) (mostly), so if I didn’t do a book justice or something doesn’t make sense, feel free to use the comments for further discussion!
So, I’ll be honest, some of these are more tenuously connected to this challenge than others, but each one is important. There are some really good ones and some really meh ones. There are some new releases and some older stuff. I’m trying to cover literally everything here, apparently. Enjoy!
I tried so very, very hard to make this quick, but 32 books do not make for a fast time, even though I’ve already reviewed many of these on the channel. Actually, I was amazed how few I’d even talked about! This has something for everyone who reads as weirdly as me: young adult, fantasy, romance, and nonfiction. You can also skip towards the end to get my top pick so far in each category. Enjoy!
Up until now, these have had a theme. Now it’s just anarchy. I’ve got a few more books I’ve read that aren’t my biographies of a specific president. Actually, these might even be more interesting. Enjoy!
I have an admission to make. I have not been reading very much lately because I’ve become obsessed with some podcasts that have replaced my audiobooks. In this video, I recommend some of the best I found and admit how bad this obsession has gotten with one in particular.
