What were the books on your AP Euro summer reading list? Did you like them?

<p>I'm interested in reading some for fun.</p>

<p>The Prince by Machiavelli.</p>

<p>Fun? No.</p>

<p>bump ten char</p>

<p>A World Lit Only by Fire by William Manchester. I hated it.</p>

<p>none bumpde</p>

<p>Haven't read it yet, since we just got the assignment today, but we have to read I Wish I'd Been There: Book Two by Hollinshead and Rabb.</p>

<p>I got my list a week ago. Portrait Of An Age & A World Lit Only by Fire. Ordered 'em yesterday so I expect to get 'em sometime soon :3</p>

<p>We read 1984 and The Republic. Liked 1984, but The Republic was a slog.</p>

<p>Pre-class reading: The Prince, by Machiavelli; Nicholas and Alexandra, by Robert K. Massie; and the biography of our choice. I read one on Vermeer, but I don't remember the title. </p>

<p>I thought the Prince was boring, but Nicholas and Alexandra was a fascinating (although long-winded) account of Tsar Nicholas II and his wife (the last Tsar of Russia). That's definitely a worthwhile read if you have time. It reads like a TV drama. :)</p>

<p>I have to read Voltair's Cantide (?). Not looking forward to it, though, because I've heard terrible things.</p>

<p>Voltaire's Candide is pretty hilarious, actually.</p>

<p>Another Prince here, I did not like it too much...</p>
