Is this channel dead, or does anyone want to read a book together?

2018-08-20 02:05:49 UTC  

Currently reading "The Republic for Which It Stands: The United States during Reconstruction and the Gilded Age, 1865-1896" by Richard White

@Nemets I think it'll pick back up when the school year picks up. This is also a great server for promoting the Guardian's program

2018-08-20 20:22:28 UTC  

Does anyone know what I can read on the US history? Something that can give me a good overview since I'd be starting with very basic knowledge (a foreigner here, don't judge).

2018-08-21 00:50:53 UTC  

@Nota Bene - NY which era?

2018-08-21 01:41:24 UTC  

@Nemets Hmm, all of them from the beginning? My knowledge is really rudimentary. Just need basic facts, with some analysis, what happened when and why.

2018-08-21 01:46:41 UTC  

wish there was a good book that summarized the entire history, but just too broad

2018-08-21 01:49:33 UTC  

Good ol' Wikipedia! Thank you, Nemets.

@Nemets It can't be Chapaev on your avatar. But that's who comes to mind.

2018-08-21 01:51:18 UTC  

@Nota Bene - NY Pyotr Vrangel

2018-08-21 01:51:31 UTC

2018-08-21 01:53:16 UTC  

Barnes and Noble is going out of business??

2018-08-21 01:53:22 UTC  

Я редко встречаю людей, которые знают Чапаева

2018-08-21 01:54:11 UTC

2018-08-21 01:54:32 UTC  

Не то чтобы знаю. А вы русский?

2018-08-21 01:54:40 UTC  

I saw this happen to borders 10 years ago

2018-08-21 01:55:01 UTC  

That's crazy. I guess it's not that surprising. I should swing by a store, see if they have good sales.

2018-08-21 01:55:14 UTC  

Нет, я немец

2018-08-21 01:55:16 UTC

2018-08-21 01:55:31 UTC  

I love leather bound books

2018-08-21 01:56:17 UTC  

@Nemets I see.

2018-08-21 01:56:44 UTC  

There were a lot of them during Peter the Great and Yekaterina in Russia.

2018-08-21 01:59:46 UTC  

there are still some streets in Ukraine with German names and houses, from the time when they had their own parts of cities
