I love these little cultural history books from Kindle. You can down load them to your tablet or Chrome and take them with you for that waiting room experience or airport down time. Because they are old, they are free, but, best of all they allow one to take a trip back in time as well as space. Plus, most of the world has maintained a since of history and in many cases things written about in these old books are still available to see today. If one is interested in history these old books are a living history and well worth the price.
