So we’ve almost got more TV shows than books this week. Actually, if you count the first title, we do have more TV shows. That first title is also a TV show (we’ve got it on order). But hey! Those TV shows teach us about other cultures and history! So they’re educational. And education is always a good thing.
We’d like to know what y’all are reading too! So, please feel free to let us know in the comments.
||The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency (Book 1) by Alexander McCall Smith
This is the story of the delightfully cunning and enormously engaging Precious Ramotswe, who is drawn to her profession to “help people with problems in their lives.” Immediately upon setting up shop in a small storefront in Gaborone, she is hired to track down a missing husband, uncover a con man, and follow a wayward daughter. But the case that tugs at her heart, and lands her in danger, is a missing eleven-year-old boy, who may have been snatched by witchdoctors.
||We Will Not Be Silent : The White Rose Student Resistance Movement that Defied Adolf Hitler by Russell Freedman
Hans Scholl and his sister Sophie belonged to the Hitler Youth as young children, but began to doubt the Nazi regime. As older students, they formed the White Rose, a campaign of active resistance to Hitler and the Nazis. Risking imprisonment or even execution, the White Rose members distributed leaflets urging Germans to defy the Nazi government.
|Hitler Youth: Growing up in Hitler’s Shadow by Susan Campbell Bartoletti
By the time Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, 3.5 million children belonged to the Hitler Youth. Susan Campbell Bartoletti explores how Hitler gained the loyalty, trust, and passion of so many of Germany’s young people.
|DramaWorld (TV Series)
This show is about a girl who is obsessed with K-dramas (Korean Drama). Then she gets sucked into the world of one of her favorite K-dramas. I was looking through Netflix for some foreign TV series to watch. I like this because it take a look into what might go on behind the shows.
|Timeless (TV series)
This show just finished its first season on NBC. I’m only up to episode 4. It’s about a bad guy who stole a time machine and is determined to sabotage America by changing its history. There’s also a team of good guys (which includes a historian) who are determined to protect history. So far, they haven’t been real successful.
The show was created by the same guy who created the show “Supernatural” which is now in its 12th season and has been renewed for a 13th. So I’ve got high hopes for this one.
