So, Fourth of July here in the USA … Do you ever read books that could be considered patriotic? Rousing stories of heroes? History? Brave countrymen & women doing bold things?

What would you recommend if somebody asked you for something patriotic–no matter what your country?

Be as specific or as general as you like?

  1. Coming from Northern Ireland where the two ‘sides ‘ terrorised one another for 30 years resulting in the deaths of 3000 plus people and then turned around and shook hands and smiled over the bodies of the ‘fodder’ for their patriotism, I should say that patriotism leaves me not cold……………..but furiously hot !

    Probably the most patriotic book I’ve read recently wasn’t trying to be overtly: Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand.

    I used to read American Girls. Does that count?
