Summer reading assingment for all upcoming Seniors taking World History.
Your history summer assignment is to read A History of the World in Six Glasses by Tom Standage.
This 240-page book is available in multiple formats — major bookstore, online booksellers, for the Kindle, IPad, and the Nook. There are copies available in the EBR Parish Library in book, e-book and audio forms. Used capies can be purchased through Amazon.com I purchased a used copy for under $5 including shipping.
I have also provided links below to free .pdf files and an audio book, though both formats are cumbersome.
This assignment will give you an overview of the time periods, regions, and cultural customs within much of world history.
