Roberta This is a great list. I love non-fiction so will be able to use it as a guide. I don't know how to add a book but would like to reccomend Zarafa: A Giraffe's True Story, from Deep in Africa to the Heart of Paris by Michael Allin.


message 2: by Ben (new)

Ben Great list! Some non-fiction is just so utterly boring . . thank you for creating such a wonderful list.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You add books at the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."

However, if you are the author I believe that is no longer possible; too many authors were abusing the privilege.


message 4: by Lisa (new)

Lisa I read a ton of non fiction, I have added my limit of 100 books.


message 5: by Stacey (new)

Stacey Cohen-Maitre, Ph.D. I recommend "Asher and Stacey's Magnificent Road Trip" by Stacey Cohen-Maitre. It's a memoir and an unconditional love story.


message 6: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady @Stacey
Said it before and I'll say it again: As you share the same first name with the author, I can't escape the notion that you might be one and the same person?


message 7: by Rosa (new)

Rosa She has the same last name, too.
