Do any of you read non-fiction? 📚
Julie #questionnaire #nonfiction
Yes. Quite a bit.
Got any recommendations? @Andrew
Andrew Napolitano is good. So is Eric Metaxas.
@Julie and David McCullough. His 1776 and John Addams were spectacular.
Eric Larson has several wonderfully scripted non-fiction books. 100% non-fiction and reads as literature.
What kind of non-fiction? I read a lot of self help
Any, really. But I do lean towards self-help a lot.
I’m currently reading: Girl, Wash Your Face and its pretty good. My all time favorite is the life changing magic of tidying up. It Starts with Food is about Whole30 and was a really good read for me. The 5 Choices: The path to extraordinary productivity was very good. The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy was good… Thats all I can think of off the top of my head
non-self help I really like Ellen DeGeneres and Lauren Graham (except In Conclusion)
@Stacey I just read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up in January.
I LOVED Girl, Wash your Face!
@Julie have you seen the Netflix show Disjointed?
I haven’t, I don’t have Netflix.
@Ashley whats disjointed about?
It’s Kathy Bates show where she runs a pot dispensary. There is a scene where she is reading The Life Changing Magic, and pulls out a “toy” says, “You no longer spark joy, thank you for your service,” and throws it away. It’s sooo funny. The whole show is. Lol.
Right now I’m reading The aNo-Cry Potty Training Solution and I’m waiting for Girl, Wash Your Face to arrive.
I love reading True Crime books and certain autobiographies. That is the extent of my non fiction interests.
Yes. As a history major, it’s kind of required.
I was a history major too! So much reading….
@Eri my final semester was three reading intensives and a research thesis. Rough.
@Nikolas yep that seems rough! While I was doing my thesis, I was mostly taking ed classes, so they balanced each other out.
I love nonfiction, and I bounce from memoirs (e.g. Dear Leader, Funny in Farsi), to journalistic case study (e.g. Evicted, The Underground Girls of Kabul), to laymen’s science (e.g. Packing For Mars, The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat), to social/interpersonal (e.g. Evicted, Far From The Tree), to historical (e.g. Devil in the White City, Midnight in the Garden Of Good and Evil, Buried In The Sky, Tourist’s Guide to Medieval Europe).
I read non-fiction about historical events. Mainly about French and Scottish royalty.
I’m reading politics lately: How Democracies Die, On Tyranny. I also read history. Sapiens is really interesting.
I read everything
Glad I’m not the only one who enjoys Non-Fiction reads too. I started reading more fiction when I got a little burned out by NF. Mostly because I tend to gravitate towards self-help which can be a bit draining, but looking to pick it back up in the Fall or late summer. I just needed a break.
Hey Julie, Have you ever read The Diary of Anne Frank
Yes! I read it in high school!
Oh ok and I just asking and I read it last year
I remember it being sad. What did you think?
I like it but it was so sad and did you read The diary of a young girl
No, I havent read that one.
Oh well I did
I jump genres all the time.
Yes. Just finished Kitchen Confidential. I read Hamilton two months ago. I read Yes, Please last month. I just like reading. I’ll read most genres.
I want to read both Kitchen Confidential and Hamilton! What did you think of them?
@Eri i enjoyed them both! I definitely recommend.
