We are getting closer to the one year mark here at Reckless Historians, I know this because The Junto’s March Madness is starting up again.
I am a huge fan of this idea. Last year for my Colonial America class I read three of the nominated books, including the winning book, American Slavery, American Freedom, by Edmund Morgan — who I have grown to love as a writer and historian.
It is a fun way to see what people are reading, and creates a light-hearted, fun competition between people over which book should be held up as the victor.
Here is the opening post for the tournament, and I also have their schedule right below.
