    • I’m always excited by how many good non-fiction new releases there are when I go looking for them. I’ll be excited to hear what you thought of Careless People! I didn’t love The Great Gatsby, but it’s a fascinating time period and I do like books about books :)

    • Thanks Amanda! Cut Me Loose is definitely the book I’m most interested in. I love a memoirs, especially those about people with experiences somewhat different from my own :)

    Love the non-fiction projects for kids! I might try some out with my oldest. I forget I should probably try to introduce non-fiction as much as fiction.

    • I’m not sure I had any experience with non-fiction in school, so it made me really happy to see these project. It’s great that some younger students are learning about non-fiction :)

    • I love how much information non-fiction books manage to share in just a title! This one appealed to me because I’d like to read more books about books. It’s such a fun genre :)
