Patriots and Peoples concerns history. While I write about many topics (mostly North American history), the name of the blog stems from investigating ideologically driven histories from both the Right and the Left as described in an early post: "Patriot's and People's Histories". In "Worth Another Look" are summaries and links to some of my best posts.
In early January, I mentioned the reading challenge my partner and I set for ourselves this year. With one quarter of 2008 behind us, it is time to take stock. In the past three months we have read twenty-eight books totaling 8323 pages. If it were a contest, I would be way behind as my wife has read two books and 965 pages more than me.
