The History Non-Fiction Group is voting for the Oct-Dec Quarterly Group read. We've had several interesting books nominated. Please take a look and vote if you'd like to join in.
Nominations for the Oct-Dec Quarterly read in the Non-Fiction History group are in progress. Please feel free to nominate a book you'd like to see us read together.
Hi - Welcome to the History Non-Fiction Group (and to Shelfari since I see you've recently joined). I'm the Admin for the group and am interested in what our members would like 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. The group is currently 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 Champollion solving the mystery of the language on the Rosetta Stone. We're a month away from discussion, so depending on how fast you read, it's not too late to join in with the group. 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 18 September. Please join us if you've got the time. Again, glad to have you with us.
