Genuinely Fun Non-Fiction
I read notably more fiction than non-fiction. Non-fiction usually fails to really hold my attention long enough for me to finish the book. I need a plot to draw me in. Facts and figures, however interesting, just don't bring me back for more. After that last post about Killing Bono, which is non-fiction, I thought I'd post a list of non-fiction books I have read from cover-to-cover, really enjoyed and highly recommend to you.
Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt
All the Clean Ones Are Married: And Other Everyday Calamities In Moscow by Lori Cidylo
Round Ireland With a Fridge by Tony Hawks
Playing the Moldovans At Tennis by Tony Hawks
Girl, Interruppted by Susanna Kaysen
