Reading and Fireworks Go Together Well

I adore Independence Day! Since I am currently out barbecuing and firework-ing in celebration of my favorite country, I prepared a very short list of some fabulous books worth reading (or re-reading) around this time of the year.

1776 by David McCullough (beautifully written and sure to inspire tears and patriotism)

John Adamsby David McCullough (long, but worth the read)

Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson ( a wake-up call to the slavery issue during the Revolutionary War)

The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Vol. II by M.T. Anderson (more of the wake-up call to slavery)

So, take out your favorite patriotic book (any suggestions?) or just enjoy the fireworks. Either way:
