Irma Alam (irmaalam) | 145 comments I enjoy Fantasy a lot but feel the need to expand my genres to include non-fiction. This is my attempt to read atleast one non-fiction book a month for the rest of 2020.

Ilona | 4118 comments Best of luck, Irma! What kind of topics are you interested in?


message 4: by Irma (new)

Irma Alam (irmaalam) | 145 comments I am interested in psychology/neuroscience, personal development or history. The 80/20 principle is a bit hard for me to comprehend especially the corporate part. I got through the part where the book talks about applying 80/20 rule to personal life. That's the point of non-fiction I guess. Getting out of one's comfort zone.

Martha | 57 comments Hey there Irma, I really like your name!

I also enjoy reading non-fiction a lot. I quickly looked up some of my favorite non-fiction books, but sadly they're all in German with no english translation - so I am afraid they're not accessible.

A book that's non-fiction and about personal developtment I really enjoyed was The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy.

I hope you have a nice day, Martha :)

Irma Alam (irmaalam) | 145 comments Hey Martha! Thanks for the suggestion! Will add that to by TBR.

When I was younger someone told me my name is German and I even tried learning the language on Duolingo so that I can realise my dream of moving to Germany. It's never too late I guess!
