Some time ago I started an email discussion on the categories we have been using. You can refresh your memory on those categories here:
Based on your feedback, I suggest hat we reduce the number of categories, so that we will read more books in our favorite categories. I suggest the following categories
Books of topical interest
Tonight's discussion on Ukraine and discussions related to the commemoration of the War of 1812, the Civil War and World War I are examples.American History
We can include books focusing on events that occurred locally in this category.European History (anything since the middle ages)
History in Other Regions (modern in Asia, Latin America, or Africa)
We can read biography, economic history, history of science and technology as they fit into any of these other categories if the book itself is interesting.
