Several people have asked for the book list I put together combining MOH 3 and Sonlight H (plus a few other books)...here it is at long last! For those who have previously read how we combined SL with MOH 1 and 2, I updated that post with what we *actually* ended up doing with core G. There were a few books at the end of my original listing that I saved for MOH 3 instead.
Below is what my 8th grade daughter is doing this year (and my 10th grade son is listening in to the read-alouds). My son is using MOH for high school this year, by surprise--I'll put what he's doing in a separate post.
Famous Men of the Renaissance and Reformation
Famous Men of the 16th and 17th Centuries
Mothers of Famous Men
Ten Girls Who Made History
We continue to enjoy the Famous Men series, that has been a good addition here.
The first few read-alouds actually start from before the time period of MOH 3. I worked in two new Sonlight G books as well as a core 200 book. My son is studying MOH 2 and 3 this year, so I chose a few books that would correspond to the MOH 2 time period as well. It's not an exact science, I realize, but it's been enjoyable! These could easily be worked into the MOH 2 rotation instead if you wish.

Sometimes my kids will choose a book off the alternates list, or sometimes during the year they'll ask to read another book instead, so I try to work in a little wiggle room for that.
I let my dd pick and choose from the history activities once every week or two. We do some of the quizzes and the semester and final exams from MOH as well.
I hope this helps! The dating is just to get a rough idea--usually you can find this information on the back of a book or in the first few pages. I try to guess how many chapters or pages we'll read, so again, these are guesses. We're on week 19, and so far have held fairly close to this list.
