#ShawnaReads This book moved a little slow at first but I hung on because I really love reading books and watching shows on midwifery and I’m glad I did because it turned out to be wonderful. This story takes place in the early 1900s and incorporates many factual events which I love!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Birth House by Ami McKay⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sent via @planoly #planoly #gettingbookish #gettingbookishwithshawnaandlizz #bookish #bookworm #bookstagram #bookworm #booksbooksbooks #bookhoarder #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookster #bibliophile #booklover #bookblogger #bookpodcast #historicalbooks #historicalfiction #bookphotography #histfic #amreading #currentlyreading #booklove #thebirthhouse #amimckay #nationalbestseller

Historial Fiction - 10/100 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ~ 5 This Was A Reread For Me. An Easy 5 Star Rating. And Theres Now A Movie Adaption For This Book. But The Name Has Been Changed And The Book Is Also Now Published As “Ashes In The Snow”. Of Course The Book Is Always Better! And It’s A Good Movie, But Honestly I Don’t Think The Movie Does The Book Any Justice. For Me, It Felt Too Rushed, & Too Many Important Parts In The Book That Are Missing In The Movie. • • “Fifteen Year Old Lina Is A Lithuanian Girl Living An Ordinary Life - Until Soviet Officers Invade Her Home And Tear Her Family Apart. Separated From Her Father & Forced Onto A Crowded Train, Lina, Her Mother, And Her Young Brother Make Their Way To A Siberian Work Camp, Where They Are Forced To Fight For Their Lives. Lina Finds Solace In Her Art, Documenting These Events By Drawing. Risking Everything, She Imbeds Clues In Her Drawings Of Their Location And Secretly Passes Them Along, Hoping Her Drawings Will Make Their Way To Her Father’s Prison Camp.

Another historical novel, set in the late 1880s, so just after the last book I read and also set in NYC. This one is about the Current War (as in *electrical* current) and is told from the perspective of the young, inexperienced, hotshot lawyer hired by George Westinghouse to defend against patent infringement lawsuits from Thomas Edison regarding who had the right to market the lightbulb. The legal battle devolved into a fight over AC vs DC (alternating or direct) current as the big companies vied for mastery of this new technology, to be the first to provide homes and businesses with safe, reliable, inexpensive light after sunset. For those unfamiliar with the rivalries and animosity involved in forming the beginnings of the electrical grid in the United States, you will surely recognize prominent historical figures such as Nikola Tesla and J.P. Morgan, as well as a certain less well-known opera singer. This is a great story, with fabulous characters and I’m not surprised it’s being made into a movie. There are clearly liberties taken with the exact timeline and certain events, and those are all carefully described in the afterward of this history-inspired novel. Have you ever thought about how the famed giant General Electric started or even got its name? You will find out. #lastdaysofnight #grahammoore #thelastdaysofnight #thomasedison #georgewestinghouse #paulcravath #nikolatesla #thecurrentwar #lightbulb #electricity #historicalnovel #historyofphysics #1880s #ushistory #historicalfiction #patentlaw #patentlawyer #electriclight #edisonbulb #edisonbulbs #electriclightbulb #currentlyreading #bookstagram #bookclub #bookclubofinstagram #jenreadthis

THE BOOK ITCH: FREEDOM, TRUTH & HARLEM’S GREATEST BOOKSTORE (2015) tells the story of Lewis Michaux Sr, great-uncle to the book’s author #VaundaMicheauxNelson, and his National Memorial African Bookstore. Illustrated by #RGregoryChristie it is an utterly absorbing book. 📚 @mahoganybooks and @wowbookandtoy are two Black-owned bookstores on IG — Support them! Share others in the comments! 📚 From publisher #CarolrhodaBooks: “In the 1930s, Lewis’s dad, #LewisMicheaux Sr., has an itch he needed to scratch—a book itch. How to scratch it? He started a bookstore in #Harlem and named it the #NationalMemorialAfricanBookstore. And as far as Lewis Michaux Jr. could tell, his father’s bookstore was one of a kind. People from all over cane to visit the store, even famous people—Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, and Langston Hughes to name a few. In his father’s bookstore people bought and read books, and they also learned from each other. People swapped and traded ideas and talked about how things could change. They came together here all because of his father’s book itch. Read the story of how Lewis Michaux Sr. and his bookstore fostered new ideas and helped people stand up for what they believe in.” 📚 THE BOOK ITCH reminded me in many ways of Memphis, Martin, and the Mountaintop by Alice Faye Duncan, (a book I recently posted about). Both books are narrated by children who have front row seats to an important historical time/moment. Malcolm X has an important supporting role in THE BOOK ITCH—as MLK Jr. does in Memphis, Martin and the Mountaintop—but the book is more about the Black community and the local activists supporting his work and ideas. The location of each book is also integral to the story being told. I think they’d be great books to read and discuss side by side! 📚 THE BOOK ITCH includes a brief bio of Lewis Michaux Sr, an Author’s Note, and a Selected Bibliography.
