Review: On This Day in Columbus Ohio History

User Review  - Megan - Goodreads

Fun book for the guestroom/side table with a little (1-2 paragraph) story for each day of the year - the relationship between the story and the date is not always obvious, but still well-written and a good format for picking up some local Columbus flavor in small bites. Read full review
