Hi Casey - Welcome to the History Non-Fiction Group. I'm the Admin for the group and am interested in what our members like to read and what they want to get out of this group. If you haven't already done so, please introduce yourself in our "Welcome and Introduction" thread and tell us what your interests are. We're into our Jul-Sep quarterly group read and I've sent you a separate note about that. Again, glad to have you with us!
The History Non-Fiction Group is reading The Linguist and the Emperor: Napoleon and Champollion's Quest to Decipher the Rosetta Stone by Daniel Meyerson for the Jul-Sep quarter. This book discusses the two men whose lives intersected over a love of all things Egypt and led to Campollion solving the mystery of the language on the Rosetta Stone. The book is fairly short - only 271 pages including the Author's Note at the end - and easy to read so it's a good book for the first ever quarterly read. Discussion thread will be posted mid-September. Please join us.
