Also Radium Girls by Kate Moore
I read very little non-fiction, but a book at the top of that list is Where Men Win Glory by Jon Krakauer. But, since the event is devastating, I’m going to really have to be in the mood to read it. Also, I want to read Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

1) Quiet – Susan Cain
2) Isaac’s Storm – Erik Larsen
3) Just Mercy – Bryan Stevenson
4) The Tipping Point – Malcolm Gladwell

9) The Emperor of All Maladies – Siddhartha Mukherjee
I have read number 4, 7, and 9. I liked 7 the best!
Lost City is great!!
Isaac’s Storm is excellent, as are all of Larsen’s books.
@Jean I agree! I’ve read and enjoyed Dead Wake and Devil in the White City.
@Kristin I’ve read Devil in the White City twice. In the Garden of the Beasts is also good.
@Jean agreed. The garden of beasts is on my my favorites!
The Destiny of the Republic is my favorite.
Sociology by Anthony Giddens
The Apology by Plato
The Diary of Anne Frank
Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover – excellent book
Mein Kampf, Complexity, Fear, off the top of my head
Educated; Icebound by Jerri Nielsen; Damnation Island by Stacy Horn; Alexander Hamilton by Chernow; I Am Malala; Dead Wake by Eric Larson; Mayflower by Nathaniel Philbrick; The Great Bridge by David McCoulough.
Currently, I am reading Life and Death in Shanghai by Nien Cheng. She was imprisoned in solitary confinement during the Cultural Revolution under Mao without being convicted of specific charges. It’s a chilling story, but her spirit and will to survive are inspirational. I’m about half-way through.
I kind of just happen across non-fiction titles. Educated is the only one I have on my list but I will pick up others as I browse
I have recently read Black Klansman (undercover in the klan), Born Survivors (WWII), and QB: My Life Behind the Spiral (Steve Young) and I have read a few books by kidnapping survivors but it is really unusual for me to read so much non-fiction. I want to read Anne Frank and Fear and I have always wanted to read a biography of JP Morgan.
I am Malala
Why We Sleep
The Devil in the White City
Not a Good Day to Die
Reading Fear, The People vs Democracy, Why I’ve Stopped Talking to White People About Race.
