I get the sense many of my readers write and read primarily fiction. Although I write fiction and read mostly fiction, I read non-fiction books occasionally too. Some of the non-fiction I read is outside the kidlit arena.
Excluding books about writing and cookbooks, here are three of my recent non-fiction reads:
DEAR BULLY: 70 AUTHORS TELL THEIR STORIES edited by Megan Kelley Hall (Young Adult- HarperTeen) Kidlit authors share their experiences with bullying growing up.
BOSSYPANTS by Tina Fey (Adult-Little, Brown & Company) With her usual comedic flair, Tina writes about her childhood, her theater days, and her entry into the entertainment industry.
BAD GIRLS: 26 WRITERS MISBEHAVE edited by Ellen Sussman (Adult- W. W. Norton & Company) Adult writers share the naughty deeds they've committed when they were younger.
I just noticed my recent non-fiction reads all comprise of narratives from writers!
Do you read non-fiction? What are some non-fiction books you've read?
