*UPDATE*

I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Here is a quick sticky link to my Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge and Read-a-Thon.

Don’t Know Much About… Blog

I know that we are always looking for new blogs to add to our overflowing Reader and I thought that I had to share something about this one with you. 

Yesterday I reviewed Don’t Know Much About History here at The Maiden’s Court.  And although I thought I knew a thing or two about American history, I learned that there were a lot of things that I knew nothing about.  The author, Kenneth C. Davis has written several different books in the Don’t Know Much About series which I intend on pursuing in the future.  However in the meantime, Davis writes a blog with each posting featuring a different new fact.

Some of the recent posts have included such topics as:

  • Why a Vice President Matters
  • Herbert Hoover
  • Herman Melville
  • End of Discrimination in the Military

Davis also does a short video series on Youtube called Don’t Know Much About Minute on other history facts.  The playlist of these videos is below. 

So for you little dose of daily history facts you can check out Davis’ blog.
