After college I remember thinking I’d never want to read anything but fiction again for the rest of my life. I probably had the same thought after grad school. But then I immediately picked up The Toyota Way because I actually like this stuff and I thought it might apply to my new job.
Nowadays, I read a lot of romance and the occasional thriller or mystery, but I still read a fair amount of nonfiction. Aside from books on writing, I read for background research, to learn something new, or just on a topic of interest.
Here are a few of the nonfiction books sitting on my—virtual or actual—shelf waiting anxiously for me to get caught up. *snort* Like that will happen.
- Rogue Warrior by Richard Marcinko
- The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone
- Band of Sisters: American Women at War in Iraq by Kristen Holmstedt
- Story by Robert McKee
- The Art of Intrusion: The Real Stories Behind the Exploits of Hackers, Intruders and Deceivers by Kevin D. Mitnick
- Danger Close: Tactical Air Controllers in Afghanistan and Iraq by Steve Call
- Bad And Beautiful: Inside the Dazzling and Deadly World of Supermodels by Ian Halperin
- SuperFreakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
I could actually go on and on—I have a whole list of books I haven’t even acquired yet sitting on my Evernote app—but I’ll spare you. 😉
What’s on your nonfiction TBR? Or do you stick strictly to fiction?
