I have a problem when I go Christmas shopping......
I seem to buy things for myself while I'm buying things for others.
Case in point, I bought this book for my Cousin's husband and it look like a really interesting book and was at a good price so I picked one up for myself too.
It is a very cool book, has tons of newspapers from 1863 -1866. Much better than reading from history books.
