Because of this, I am calling all my followers and others that read this blog to help me out with inspiration for next year! I would like to read more books about American History that isn't the traditional history you learn in high school and college.
Here are a few topics that I find interesting:
- The Black/African-American experience
- The Asian experience
- The Southwest (I'm originally from New Mexico and am much more interested in exploring Southwestern History since the passing of the restrictions on ethnic studies in Arizona)
- The Native American experience
- Women's History in America
- The Cajun experience (I became interested in this when I went to Nova Scotia and learned about the Acadians, some of whom ended up in Louisiana)
- War experience of minorities in America
I would just like to broaden my knowledge of history in the United States. I don't care if it is a novel, a non-fiction book, or if it's controversial. Running this blog has helped me become more open to different reading experiences. Also, if you happen to be from another country and can suggest an interesting novel or historical non-fiction book from your country (that's available in English), I would love to learn more about your culture and country's history as well.
