Looks like you have some good lists for me to dig through!
I hope so 🙂
You have no idea how much I look forward to your Nonfiction Friday!
Aw, thanks Claire! That’s nice to hear 🙂
I love your NF Fridays. I’m not a big non-fiction reader, but looking through your links, I always find something that catches my eye. I just requested The Sixth Extinction and The Empathy Exams from the library thanks to the Flavorwire link.
Oh, that’s so exciting! I love when people who don’t typically read nonfiction give it a chance and I’m glad my round-up has helped you find some to try 🙂
Thanks for this nice little collection of links … if my fiction TBR already scares me, now I’m going to add to my non-fiction TBR 😉
Haha, yeah, sometimes I wish I just read one genre so there were fewer books on my TBR pile, but I’m not sure that would really help. I’d probably just want to read more of that one genre instead of cutting down on my list!
I’m glad to hear that non-fiction for children is on the rise. I have a 7 year old reader, but she loved non-fiction, something i still don’t read that much of, and I have a tough time finding enough quality stuff for her.
I think it’s wonderful that she’s reading nonfiction! I’ve read a few articles lately that make me hopeful you’ll be able to find more books for her in the future.
