Having Trouble With Your New Year Resolution to Read a History Book?

newyear2017

A journey of a 1,000 miles begins with a single step. Start with a single 5 minute story. Then read an entire selection. Then read the book. 1, 2, 3.

Search. Lots of history sites to choose. Look for those sites that have authoritative passages from established historians. Or, if you get frustrated with that, try History Moments.

Yes, I know. Still more frustration. How to pick something from that lengthy list? That’s the trouble with having more choices — more choices to choose from. Alright, I’ll choose somethng for you. Suggested pick for today: The exciting story of the first expedition to reach the South Pole.

As for all of those books, choose a book from The Basic History Library (free).

Yes, this is a little self-serving because I refer to my own collections but I do not know of anyone else who is doing what I am doing. Also, it is free.  Most important, these are true history selections, not those revisionist histories from left-wingers.

Now get back on that New Year resolution!
