Day 4: Non-Fiction
Do I read Non-Fiction? yes, a lot.
I used to read always 1 fiction and 2 non-fiction (one begin religion) books at the same time. A bit less now under the pressure of finishing books for tours.
I know, that’s bad, and I keep promising I won’t sign up for so many tours, and then here you go, I receive this proposal of a virtual book tour for a fabulous book that seriously, I can’t refuse…
Today’s question prompted me to look through all the reviews posted (now, my tab of all books reviewed on this blog really came handy!), to see what were my non-fiction reads.
So here are the different categories, and I highlight at least 1 book for each.
Click on the book covers to access my reviews – some are really older reviews, and I was not giving as many details as in my recent reviews, sorry:
NATURE, 3 books
SCIENCE, 3 books
PHILOSOPHY, 4 books
HISTORY, 6 books
I loved very much 4 of them:
Matti Friedman, The Aleppo Codex (2012) audio
Laura Hillenbrand, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption (2010)
Erik Larson, In The Garden of Beasts (2011) audio
LANGUAGE/READING, 6 books
BIOGRAPHY, 9 books
I also enjoyed a lot
Claire Tomalin, Charles Dickens: A Life (2011)
RELIGION, 15 books
TRAVEL, 18 books
The reason of this high number being my 52 countries challenge and my numerous books on France
