The History Non-fiction Reading Challenge

Rachel at Hibernator's Library is hosting a history reading challenge, which is excellent news.  It's the History Nonfiction Reading Challenge 2020, and as Rachel says:

After scouring the archives of challenges in the past, I discovered a paucity of history challenges. I plan on reading a lot of history next year, and think it would be interesting to see what others are reading too. I will post a linky on the first day of every month so you can include any nonfiction history books you’re reading. The rules are not strict – if you consider the book to be history, then go ahead and post it.

That's just what I need!
