I just came across this excellent article on Wildflowers and Marbles — “A Considered Booklist.” There are an endless number of history booklists out there already (for more on that, see my giant list of lists). At some point, however, you have to sit down and sift through all of these lists to decide which books you will read and schedule in your own homeschool. Jennifer Mackintosh’s article walks you through the process of deciding which books to read, based on your own goals, children, interests, time, etc. and how to schedule a reasonable amount of reading for each year, term, week, and day. Definitely worth a read!
