Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation - Joseph J. Ellis I admit: not my kind of book. History bores me to tears, for some reason. I think it's because I like a good story … and while yes, some events in history are good stories, I always feel so detached from them. Like, I can't relate to the people I'm reading about. I don't know. But anyway, I had to read this for summer reading and I couldn't stand it. It's one of those books I had to read word by word, and even then I couldn't absorb what I was reading.
