Hello Readers :)

I see all of us enjoy fiction but very few actually would even pick up non-fiction, but I'm sure all of us have read some non-fictions, if not for fun then for a class.

I think my absolute favorites have to be The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch and Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. I don't know if I can call these my favorite because of the really sad and tragic subjects they deal with Cry I still can't stop my tears when I read them but they definitely stand out amongst non-fiction: Night by Elie Wiesel and A Child Called "It" by Dave Pelzer.

So which is your favorite non-fiction? And it is quite possible that the non-fictions rank low on your preference, but what I'm asking is amongst all the non-fictions you've read, which one is the best one? Your favorite one?

Although I definitely prefer fiction novels Inferno - The Devastation of Hamburg, 1943 is definitely my favorite non-fiction. I'm a huge fan of history, especially WWII, so it was amazing to read what really happened compared to what I've seen in movies. Left me teary eyed  :(

I tend to read  and like way more fictional work than non-fiction..it's just the kind of stuff I like...if I ever do manage to read some non-fiction it's mostly self improvement/ self help/ study books or autobiographies. Not really interested in anything else much...But my dad wants me to read stuff by Ayn Rand...he's also given me some Deepak chopra books, so might get around to reading...but I have like zero interest in it. LOL

The Burn Journals! It was the most depressing book I've ever read, but it has a good ending, i think..i can't remember clearly because it's been a while.
