    I like the Google thing. The most exciting thing we can do with nonfiction is involve it in a car wreck.

    I really like checking out the non-fiction lists because they give me great gift ideas. There are a few readers in my life who seem to prefer non-fiction.

    Katie, thank you SO much for all the non-fiction recs, and also for convincing me that I can enjoy nf. You are definitely my go-to non-fiction expert. Also, I love this feature and I may need to participate sometime. I hope no books were harmed in the non-fiction section crash!

    • Aww, thanks Aylee! That’s one of the nicest things someone has said to me :) I didn’t see anything in the article about the books being damaged, so hopefully the books were safe :)
