Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving was not going to happen originally.

Well, not much of one at any rate. I made a chicken and the Weasle and I were playing Balder's Gate II. Ok, I was playing and he was making comments on my inability to find a cave I was looking for. (If a cave is labeled Gnoll Cave II then by all reasoning there should be a Gnoll Cave I, right?) Anyway, my other brother called from his sister in law's house and asked if we wanted to eat thanksgiving over there. Not having anything else to do we said yeah.

When we got there I spent most of my time talking to my sister in law's dad and telling him how the Crusades were brought about and why. He is into that stuff big time (his words), actually he is into history in general. Which brings me to my point.

Does anyone know some good cheap books on the Crusades and other historical books? Preferably those with timelines, he is not too good with when stuff happend.


Also, Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you spent it with those you love.

Your best bet is to get "PIG to Islam and the Crusades", and use the bibliography in the back as a reading list.

If you're flush with cash, ALL of the PIGs are worth the money. My favorite is "PIG to Science and Technology." Shreds Evolution, the AIDS scare, and Evironmentalist wackos, in one chapter each.
