A to Z April - N: Nonfiction





For today's post I'm kind of lumping a bunch of different types of books together.  There are so many different types of nonfiction, or "true" books.  I'm going to choose a few of my favorites that I actually read and share them with you.


1.  I already shared probably my favorite with you, and that was biographies/memoirs.  You can go back and read my post on that HERE.

2.  My second favorite group would probably be science.  As a former science teacher, with my undergraduate degree in biology and earth science.  Some of my favorite science books you can see below, and you can tell I guess, that I'm a huge dinosaur freak.  And the last one I actually included with my biography post back on #1, but it is a lot of science, and I loved that.






3.  My 3rd favorite type of nonfiction is humor.  This can be memoirs again, I love a funny life story.  Or else lately there have been some books based on technology type things that I read and it just cracks me up!!  Here are a few of my favorites.
 




4.  History is another area that I sometimes find interesting.  I don't know that I've actually read that many history books, and a lot of them though, are often true crime types of books.  Here are the ones I remember reading.  The last one I'm still reading.  I have it on my iphone and whenever I go somewhere and don't happen to have anything to read, I can pull it up and read. 






5.  The final type of nonfiction I like to "read" are cookbooks.  I technically don't read them, just look for recipes I like and then make them.  If I have time.  And I also picked this because I got to listen to the author of the Hungry Girl cookbooks, and now diet last night, so I wanted to share that picture.  But first I'll share 3 cookbooks I have actually used.

And here is a picture of Lisa Lillien, the "Hungry Girl" herself, speaking last night at the Barnes and Noble where I work part time.


So, how about you? Do you read much nonfiction?  If so, what type do you like to read?

    1. I tend to look through diet books and get to a page that says something I know I won't do, and then I'm done with it. :-) Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Those are the books that get me laughing so hard I'm crying, well the autocorrect and cake wrecks book do. The dog shaming one just amuses me as I see things my puppy does.

  4. I'm more fiction than nonfiction but I did love Papillon--it's about this guy's experiences escaping from a French island prison; it's amazing!

    1. I do love to read books that a person's experiences are amazing. Other than that I am often bored by a lot of nonfiction. Thanks for visiting!

  5. I have always been a fan of fiction but the older I get I find myself wanting to read non-fiction. I guess I'm always looking to escape so I pull the fiction book off the shelf first. I'd like to read a book on Einstein or Cleopatra. There has always been something about them that fascinated me.
