These last couple of weeks have been difficult for me. While I’ve enjoyed books; I don’t know if I’ve ever enjoyed a book “with” a friend or family member.
Oh, yeah. I’ve read books to my children, but it’s back to the memory thing; you know? I don’t remember what they were. I’m sorry. I can’t for the life of me remember any books enjoyed with someone else.
WAIT! I do remember a book we read in one of my high school classes. That would have been enjoyed with friends, right? It must have been a history class or something of that sort where we read “Nicholas and Alexandra”.
They were the last imperial family of Tsarist Russia before the revolution. IMHO – It was a well-written book on that piece of history. It evoked my empathy toward the family.
It was heart-rending to read of those times and what happened to that family. I know there are those who think Nicholas deserved what he got, but what about his family? His innocent children?
