Tonight I have been absorbed in Genealogy so needed a quick post idea. So, I have decided to share some of the books that I have acquired this month.
The next book is one that I have been watching out for. It is Tracy from the Images of America series. The book is about Tracy, California and was put together by the Tracy Historical Society. I have friends who have a copy of the book, but they live far away so I wanted to have a copy of my own. The book is full of old pictures of Tracy.
Next up is The American Covenant: The Untold Story by Marshall Foster and Mary Elaine Swanson. The cover caught my eye as it has the nice picture of the Mayflower. The book looks at the founding of New England from a Christian perspective, so it should be interesting to dig into. Plus, it does mention at least one of my ancestors. There are several mentions of Roger Williams in the book.
I have been working on my application to the Roger Williams Family Association this evening and am getting a little bit closer to gathering all the sources that I need.
Last, I found this little gem. The Empire of the Ants (and Other Stories) by H. G. Wells. This will be a nice little book to take on my next trip for some light reading. The book looks like it has been read quite a few times. I hope that means that they are great stories.
Which book would you read first?
