I am going to share a few of my favorite nonfiction reads here with you. I love to read and I try to read widely--across genres and across format. Is there anything more divine than a beautifully wrought picture book?
A nonfiction book is a winner when I'm left thinking about it long after I have finished it. I work at a library, so I don't often buy books--unless I know that I will want to reread them again. Little known fact about libraries: they don't keep books forever. Once the public hasn't checked out a book for a number of years, the book moves on to either a library sale or used book vendor or charity that redistributes used materials. Each library has different criteria for how long a book has to sit unused. If you want a place that keeps books forever, you are looking for an archive or a specialty library (so called because they specialize in one area of study).
So tell me, what are you reading? What are your go-to books when you need a pep talk?
