Six Valuable Nonfiction Reads

This is not my typical book list post. I haven't been writing very much. October seems to be that kind of month for me. I looked at my posts from last October and there were about a handful. It might be why I branch off into NaBloPoMo in November. That's National Blog Posting Month for those of you not in the know. Where I try to post every single day for 30 days. It's fun. I enjoy it. But I'm not there right now. 

* Are you interested or planning on participating? I have a very small and non-stressful FB group you should take a look at. Come on over. Write with me. *

So, instead, I've pulled together a list of recent nonfiction reads that I think are worth taking a look at. I have not yet read any of them, but each one has been in my virtual shopping cart at least once since it's been released. And that is why I consider them valuable. Because they're books that get people talking. Books that remind us that there is so much going on around us, and also help us take a look within ourselves as we look outside at the very same time. 
Without further delay - I'll give you the titles and let you decide for yourself if these are books that you need to own or request from your library. And if you do, please make sure to let me know. I'm excited to hear your thoughts on these titles. Or if you have another recent nonfiction release I should be talking about - please - drop me a line or leave me a comment. I would love love love to hear from you.

I'd absolutely love to see you there!


  1. Definitely want to read 1 and 2. Love both writers! Thanks for the list.

  2. I'm listening to What Happened right now.

  3. Some of these look interesting ---I not trying to expand my non fiction reading a bit so a coulee of these might be good additions. Thanks!

  4. I read What Happened and although I appreciated HRC doing a painful postmortem, it was too wonky for me. I'd hoped she would speak personally, finally, at last, now that she'll never run for any other office and has nothing to lose. Instead, it was like reliving the dang election. *shudder* There was one chapter about her personal feelings. The rest was a replay. Mostly, IMO, useful for campaign operatives as a learning tool.


Comments are like air to a writer.

So please - say something - help me BREATHE!
