I’ve always been a reader; as a child I read practically anything I could get my hands on, and my idea of a perfect weekend definitely includes a good book. I find that my book preferences depend on my mood. Sometimes I want a fun beach read, sometimes I want to read classic literature, and sometimes I like a new novel. However, recently I’ve been diving into the world of nonfiction books, and they’ve become some of my favorite titles I’ve ever read.
The most common thing I hear about nonfiction books is that they’re boring. My rebuttal to that is that the majority of books I haven’t liked have been fiction books. With nonfiction books, I generally have more of a sense of what I’m getting myself into, so I’m more likely to enjoy it. When I want to learn more about a topic I’m interested in, feel a bit more inspired, or expand my mindset, I grab a nonfiction book. There are a few that really stand out to me, and if you’re interested in adding some new titles to your collection, I’d go with these picks.
