Non-Fiction News and Resources

  • Searching for nonfiction news each week, I often come across sites like Brevity which public nonfiction essays and I was curious… do any of you read non-fiction essays online? Personally, my love of reading non-fiction doesn’t extend beyond books, but maybe someday it will
  • I love books about books, even when they’re books about books in the crime fiction genre, which hasn’t been my genre of choice lately
  • I’m also loving this list which combines two great genres – LGBT books and non-fiction
  • If you’re trying to buy fewer books, I’m afraid I’m not going to help because I’m going to point out this great Nonfiction Addiction sale
  • And some interesting new titles coming out this week include:
    • Embryos Under the Microscope: The Diverging Meanings of Life
    • Good Catholics: The Battle over Abortion in the Catholic Church

    If it’s any comfort, my love for non fiction is solely bookish too. And is it just me or is their usually some kind of foodie book in your list of new publications? Or maybe it’s just me being hungry … ;-)

    • Haha, no, I think you’re right! I haven’t read any foodie nonfiction this year, but I signed up for a foodie nonfiction challenge and would like to read more of it. I don’t know why, but it’s definitely a subject which interests me :)

    I love books about books too! And Catholic one looks very interesting.

    • I’m not even Catholic and I find that book intriguing, in part because of that biography I read of Anne Seaton. It made me very curious about how liberal women reconcile their personal beliefs with their religion.

    Thanks for the link to the list of books about crime fiction. I have some of them, but always looking for more. And that Powell’s sale was interesting except I have to finish the non-fiction books I have first.

    • I actually managed to avoid buying anything at the sale too. The to-read pile is good motivation to not buy anything else! I have much less willpower in physical book stores though :)

    Oh no! I don’t think I should look at the books in that Powell’s sale…

    • I know the only way I’ve found to avoid buying books is to avoid bookstores entirely. I always go in with the best of intentions, but I almost never leave without buying something!
