Here at USA e-vote, we like to promote learning, and the best way to learn is by reading. After all, by reading we gain knowledge, and knowledge is power. A well-educated person is much harder to manipulate and brainwash.
So, we would like to introduce our newest endeavor! USA-eVote Reads!!
Here, we will recommend history and historical fiction. This will include books featured in posts, such as the Reichstage Fire. It will also include children’s historical fiction, history, and even speeches. So, if you want to take your historical education into your own hands, here is a good place to start!
I took a YA Lit class and a Children’s Lit class (two separate classes) in college as an English Major, so let me tell you how this works:
- Children’s is birth through 12 years. (approximately 6th grade)
- YA is 13 through about 21. (approximately 7th grade through college)
- Adult is, well, adult.
We will put these classifications on each post to give you a good idea of the age group it’s meant for. Though, it’s pretty easy to figure it out for yourself. If the hero/heroine (i.e. main character) is 12 or below, it’s Children’s. If the main character is a teenager, it’s YA. If the main character is over 21, it’s adult. Pretty simple, huh? So why do some many places, including libraries and book stores get it confused? I have no idea. But, we will always, always classify based off these official groupings. YA is TEEN!!! Not middle school, not late grade school, but TEEN. I’m very picky on these qualifications because I took the classes.
We will also classify it’s genre, which will usually fall into one of three categories: Historical Fiction, History, or Speeches. (I may get really brave some day and post some Conspiracy Theory books or ‘What If’ books (i.e. What if Kennedy had lived). But, we’ll see how this goes, first.
We’ll also provide links to purchase the book (or you can, of course, check it out at your local library). Or, check out our goodreads page to see our rating and to connect with us!
