Global Titles

As a part of our homeschooling, David and I have been learning a bit about some different countries.For fun, I’ve adult reading about the different countries we’ve studied. Here are my lists of completed books (in order of country studied). Obviously, some of these books are better than others, and by including my lists, I am by no means recommending all of books. Let me know if you have questions or interest in a specific book and I can let you know what I thought of it.
