What’s Happening Today?
I had mentioned before I have been reading Eagle of the Ninth. It was a really good book and got me really wanting to know more about the Roman Empire. There is actually a movie going to be coming out in 2010 on the book. If it is as good as the book, I recommend checking it out. I’m going to begin discussions on the forum regarding books and movies. Check it out and get involved in our history “book and movie club”.
I am currently reading Ladies of Liberty. It is a about the women who shaped early America. So far I am learning a lot I never knew about these strong women.
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
