We took the last few weeks off from sharing our backlist book picks, but today we are back with two great Christmas reads. It is the first week of December so we thought it was the perfect time to get you in the Christmas mood with some reading. Yes, books and Christmas can go together. […]
Do you enjoy reading books about WWII? We are sharing a huge list of nonfiction World War II books. Fiction books are great, but our go to books will probably always be nonfiction. We love the true story. Although it is difficult to say reading about such a horrific event as WWII is enjoyable, it is […]

When you think of horse racing you almost always think of Kentucky, which is why I decided to read Wild Ride for my nonfiction books for every state challenge. I am sure there are other great books about Kentucky, but I am not a horse person and I knew very little about horse racing in Kentucky.
I read a thing in one of my history classes about how the US government once brought camels to the US to try and use in the army. I was interested, then I became even more interested once a western movie I was watching had a camel in it that was owned by the US government. This led me to pick up The Last Camel Charge at a used book store as it is the full story behind the camels brought the US.
