I think I've been a list maker as long as I've known how to write. (Or longer as the case may be since I do remember writing in a language known only to me there for a while.) I do have proof of one of my first lists in case you're interested.
Some of my friends on Facebook have taken art and book breaks from the political miasma that is determined to conquer us, and that made me think of my own favorites. I started making lists while sitting in the pool, and I thought I might share some of them with you, starting with my favorite non-fiction books.
There are ten books on this list, and some of them have been on it for decades. They are listed in no particular order (other than the order in which they popped into my mind), and if you click on the caption beneath the cover, you'll be taken to information about that book on Amazon. Here we go!
|History of the Dust Bowl|
|Filling in the blanks on U.S. naval history.|
|I now admire Bligh, but I still don't like him.|
|Now I know why TR is on Mt. Rushmore.|
|This book still makes me angry.|
|This is about so much more than horse racing.|
|A land of horrors...and of unmatched beauty.|
|The nurses of World War I by the master chronicler.|
|Fascinating & often hilarious history of Seattle.|
|True crime that made my blood run cold.|
What do you think of my list? Were you tempted to add any of them to your own lists? Which ones? More importantly... if you also read non-fiction, what are some of your favorite books? Please share-- you know I'm always on the lookout for new reading material!
