Travel Book Haul

IMG_2233.JPGIt’s another Travel Book Haul! This past weekend, my grandmother and I went to a BBQ festival and we really had a great time! Grammy loves to read as well, and we spent Saturday afternoon reading on her porch, talk about perfect. My coworker got me a B&N gift card for my birthday, so naturally I had to stop by on my way home. (Most of these are repeats from Wednesday’s post.)

And most of these are probably repeats from Wednesday, but oh well. Books are wonderful things.

How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster

I saw this on Hannah’s booktube From Beginning to Bookend and I was curious about it. My reviewing style has grown and evolved from how it was a year ago. I thought this book would be a good tool to help improve my skill. It’s number one on my list for Non-Fiction November.

The Devil in the White City by Erick Larson

This was popping up on Goodreads for a while and I saw it on Overdrive as well. It’s about H H Holmes, he’s probably the most successful serial killer in history. I first heard about him on the podcast Sword & Scale and I became fascinated by it. I saw the book on a discount table and decided it was time I picked it up.

A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn

Another book that showed itself on Goodreads. I read the blurp on the back and it’s not the government-focused history. It’s about the people living and working in the home and how history evolved them. I thought it would be a good addition to Non-Fiction November.

Commonwealth by Ann Patchett

This one was has been on The College Prepster several times. Carly’s books are either a hit or miss for me, but I wanted to give this one a try.

American Ulysses by Ronald C. White

My husband has been gather American History books for the past month. I believe it’s a shame that people want to erase our history. The past was wrong, but without that past, we would not be the great nation we are today. It’s something to learn and grow from. Erasing history dooms us to repeat it. My husband is a fan of the civil war, it’s very popular in our area not to mention we are surrounded by the history of it. I wanted books based on both sides, so that is where this book comes in. And this, plus the previous two were buy two get one free. I’m looking forward to expanding my knowledge on American leaders.

To Capture What We Cannot Keep by Beatrice Colin

This was in the bargain section and the cover and title really caught my eye. It’s about a woman who finds herself widowed and tries to make it in Paris. For some reason, I really gravitate and enjoy anything from Paris. So I had to check this one.

Hopefully you will see reviews for these come up in the next few months, but that would be very ambitious of me. My TBR pile tends to grow faster than I can keep up.
