    I finally have another non fiction link for you and I loved it. It’s about the lives of normal people living in Cuba. Great read.

    I liked the list of non-fiction on strange topics. I read Eat Shoots and Leaves ages ago. I’ve heard good things about Stiff, but wonder if it’s kinda gross.

    • I feel that way about all of Mary Roach’s books! Some of the other topics she tackles include digestion and sex, both topics which seem like they could involve some oversharing. I’ve only read good reviews though :)

    The weird reads list is pretty cool, and I’ve actually heard of (and am excited about reading) most of these books. I don’t know what that says about me, haha. I have Eats, Shoots & Leaves sitting on my desk right now… so many books, so little time!

    The personalized reading lists from Denver Public Library and Kim are great! And I haven’t read any of the Andrew Carnegie Medal nominees, be it fiction or non-fiction, but I’m interested in reading On Paper and Five Days at Memorial at some point. I know Five Days at Memorial was very popular during Nonfiction November last year, so I’m hoping to get to it soon.

    • I’d only heard of Stiff and Eats, Shoots & Leaves, but I thought they all sounded interesting! Nothing wrong with liking non-fiction on esoteric topics in my opinion, but I’m probably biased :) I liked Five Days at Memorial pretty well and I loved Nonfiction November. Hopefully that will happen again this year.

    I love your Non-Fiction Friday posts. I get lost in your links. It’s like a rabbit trail of the internet made just for me! :)
