Molly | 19 comments So I'm thinking of reading some more nonfiction, since I don't really read any at the moment. Does anyone have any good suggestions? :)

xD Gosh Ailish you are such a spammer ;)

I'm just kidding. That has happened to me a couple of times too. I have no idea why it does that xD

BlaiddDrwg | 6 comments well, if you'd like to and haven't read it before I highly recommend The Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. I'm not really into non fiction though I like to read some biographies/autobiographies sometimes but I really loved this book.

Molly | 19 comments Oh, I remember Hank Green talking about What If? in a vlogbrothers video! I forgot that I wanted to check it out! Ok I put everyone's suggestions on my TBR thanks so much!!

Julie | 20 comments One of my favorite nonfiction is Wild Swans by Jung Chang, it's brilliant, and have been one of my favorite books for years!

Angela Jr. i don't really own that many non-fiction books but one i'd definitely recommend is "a child called 'it'" by dave pelzer. it's not what you'd call a fun read but i chose to read it in school for extra credit for english when i was younger and while some passages of it are really hard to read, i think it's still a very interesting book. it tells the story of an abusive mother and her kids. pelzer also wrote two sequels continuing the story - the lost boy and a man named dave.

another one that i found interesting to read is 102 minutes by jim dwyer and kevin flynn. again, not what you would call a fun read ^^ it tells the story of some of the survivors of the attack on the world trade center.

the last one i own is sickened by julie gregory and it's about a mother who suffers from the munchausen syndrome by proxy and her relationship with her daughter. it's a rather serious book, but still worth reading. i chose to read this in school for extra credit for psychology and wrote my final paper on the munchausen syndrome in general.
