Some of my best friends are books these days. Take advantage of my non-stop habit of reading about the 18th century. Here are the best books I’ve found.


Pure Fun

Steve Sheinkin is a pure delight to read. This book is filled with hilarious illustrations and reads like a graphic novel. He makes the American Revolution fun and entertaining.  Makes a great gift for any history buff. Run, don’t walk…









This is another super-fun read. Not only do you find out about all the brilliant schemes George came up with, but you find out there were lots of women involved too. George Washington was really smart about spying on the British, and this is a great way to find out the details.
