    Have only gotten into one far enough to recommend it, but despite what one thinks of Glenn Beck, this is an enjoyable read on historic events:

    http://www.amazon.com/Miracles-Mass...167359&sr=1-1&keywords=miracles+and+massacres

    And 'tween, based on a suggestion quite a way back I also got this and am looking forward to reading it:
    http://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Belief...1388167407&sr=1-1&keywords=escape+scientology

    Don't remember if I suggested this one or not but it's a good read as well (had it prior to Christmas):

    That Bound for Canaan book on the underground railroad looks really interesting. . . I'll have to check it out.

    It's good. Thorough, sometimes bordering on overly tedious I would bet some would argue but I'm learning a lot in it and the homework was definitely done. Illustrates some very admirable work done by dedicated, largely unknown folks who acted not for fame or fortune, simply based on their virtue.
