i do read non-fiction quite often…my favorite genres are biography, essays, and books on the craft of writing. actually, i often have one from every category going on simultaneously. i’ve just finished a biography (Jane Austen, A Life, by Claire Tomalin), i’m re-reading The Merry Recluse, a fabulous collection of essays by Caroline Knapp, and i’m working my way through Writing Begins With the Breath, by Laraine Herring. and yes, i’d be most interested in reviewing these kinds of books – for love or money! as far as recommending my non-fiction reading to friends…hmm~i think i just did that, didn’t i?
now tell me….what are you reading from the non-fiction bookstack?
