81 books in twelve months.....???

That's -- what -- six and three-quarters books a month!! I'm lucky to get one book read in two months!

Does Dr. Seuss count as historical? He's been around a while....?

Well, good luck with this. Motherboard is telling everyone to simplify our lives, so I may have to stick to one book in each category, but I'll give it a try!

Ooohhh! The Kingdom and the Crown (Fisher's of men)series are awesome! I loved them! I need to read them again.... Faith of our Father's is a great series as well! They are by N. C. Allen and are about a few different families during the Civil War. (LDS fiction)
