Book Matters ~ Non Fiction Recommendations

I was pleased as punch at how many of you joined in with the meme last week and provided some excellent resources regarding fiction.

Last Weeks Mentions

Non Fiction Recommendations

This week I want to hear all about your favourite non fiction choices. Biographies,  autobiographies, memoirs, articles, essays, and personal accounts. Historic accounts, journals or travel books.

If it is true then it can be included.

How you share your recommendations is entirely up to you. Perhaps a post listing 10 non fiction books you could not do without and why. Or simply your top three and why you like them.


If you yourself have written a non fiction book then please include that too. With a link to where we can all buy it. Do a little promotion.

Share any non fiction as long as it is still available in print or online to read.

Older posts on your blog are welcome. You can also link more than once.

We will be covering children’s books and poetry in the coming weeks. And you can return to fiction on the last week of this monthly prompt. So don’t include any of those here.

If you do not have a blog I would be happy to host your post.

And remember if you link up please check out some of the other bloggers in the meme.

  1. If I had to vote for only one work of non-fiction I would go for Shelby Foote’s “The Civil War:A Narrative History”. I have read it in it’s three-volume entirety three times, and sections of it many more times as it is completely engrossing. You may think you wouldn’t be interested in American military history, but you would be wrong as this is as much about modern American history. “Guns, Germs and Steel” by Jared Diamond is very relevant today. “Wonderful Life” by Stephen Jay Gould, even though some of his theories have been disproven by Simon Conway Morris, is still an amazing portrayal of the origins of life. Anything by Darwin, who wrote so wonderfully, and Charles Lyell’s “Principles of Geology” which despite our common knowledge is still astounding.

    1. Thank you again for more recommendations. In my last bookmatters week -in two weeks – can I write a guest post for u on my blog including them all? that way more people will see them – let me know what u think x

          1. Do you want me to expand on what I wrote or just stick to the books I mentioned? Haven’t done children’s books yet 😉 When would you like it by? x
