23 Amazing Classic Books That Are So Short You Have No Excuse Not To Read Them
As Books Editors, we set aside more designated reading time than most people do. Still, even we are daunted by copies of The Goldfinch looming on our desks.
A list so short we can all read along :)
Lafayette Novel: Historical Novel
Love them both. Any good Bollywood suggestions?
Oh this is the best! When it comes to Lafayette, I can’t help myself…somehow I found an online novel about him, written like an actual story compared to being a historical text! I’ve just started so I can’t offer a good evaluation however, it looks like 34 chapters of awesomeness!

Very encouraging whether you believe in God or not, please give it a look :) Hope it brightens your day!
Lafayette sails again!
The Friends of Lafayette, an American organization, have sponsored the reconstruction of the Hermoine (the article is wrong, claiming that this was the ship he sailed on during his voyage to America; the truth is that he purchased his own vessel, named it La Victorie or “The Victory” & then sailed to America after escaping arrest. Hermoine was the ship he took during his tour of the US many years later.)
Either way, I am so excited that Laf is getting partial recognition, his legacy is reviving-I personally thank all his other supporters that admire him as well! The ship will follow the map route above, retracing the journey in 2015
Lafayette: The Lost Hero
Lafayette: The Lost Hero is a film airing on PBS that tells the story of the Marquis De Lafayette and his quest to bring democracy to America and France, through the eyes of Sabine Renault Sabloniere, a 21st century descendant.
Let’s hear it for “Our Marquis”!
King said in an interview that this photograph was taken as he tried to explain to his daughter Yolanda why she could not go to Funtown, a whites-only amusement park in Atlanta. King claims to have been tongue-tied when speaking to her. “One of the most painful experiences I have ever faced was to see her tears when I told her Funtown was closed to colored children, for I realized the first dark cloud of inferiority had floated into her little mental sky.”
