Sample Answer:
The history books that express the past world in front of us are kinds of books I really like. I have not read a great number of history books but I enjoyed all of the History books that I have read so far.

The history books are fact based books that describe the events, history and significant characters from the past of human timeline. This can be simply a book that depicts the earlier civilisation of the world, can give details of the life a legendary character like Alexander or can simply explain the reasons for a great catastrophic event like the war in the past. Those events and characters come from our past history and are of great importance. Somewhere I heard that to build a good future, someone needs to learn the past. I totally agree with this statement as we have plenty of opportunities to learn from the past history of the world, our civilisations and ancestors.  

The History books that I read had helped me understanding a distant past and people of that time. History books always play an important role to educate the people about the past and I greatly enjoyed reading about our history, how the world was in the past, how different events of history had shaped the world and its geographical and political conditions. A simple event in the past had a great influence in the future and those history books bear the evidence of the past world that we have never seen.

I like those kinds of books mostly because of the enthrallment I feel while learning about the history. I purely enjoy learning about our world and significant events of the world. Those books are great sources of knowledge as well.
