Just grabbed two books on World War I for my son to read ... one thing I want to do after my PhD is spend more time reading history.

I'll add that I read a ton of history back in grade school, high school, and college and I hope to get back to it again. Career and family stuck has taken a front seat but I hope to pass some of that love on to my kids.

@boblmartens I think history should be taught better in school.

@boblmartens I suggest Hobsbawm (reading him now myself) and Barzun.
