What is your favorite non-fiction book, and why? One of my all-time favorite books is The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. Reading this memoir of a Dutch Christian women imprisoned in a concentration camp during World War II was a life-changing event for me!
What genre(s) do you enjoy, and are there particular writers that you would recommend to others? My favorite non-fiction reads are memoirs and biographies. I loved Michael J. Fox's Lucky Man and am looking forward to his new memoir Always Looking Up. Anne Lamott's work is very good too. By the way, I've read some of Alice Sebold's powerful memoir Lucky for the read-a-thon today.
If you don't read non-fiction, why not? I do read non-fiction, but I read a lot more fiction. I think that is because much of the time I like my reading to be a form of "escapism."
