Jackie’s Favorite Non-Fiction

Yes, I know I’m totally crazy about fiction– but there’s still a lot of non-fiction out there that I love!  Here’s a list of the best of the best:

For the Time Being by Annie Dillard | Absolutely gorgeous prose, ethereal and fascinating.  Reading it kind of made me feel like a ghost.

Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott | Advice on writing and life.  The best book of its kind!

Traveling Mercies by Anne Lamott | Her journey toward faith is a hilarious and endearing one.

Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris | Everything Sedaris writes is hilarious, but this book is my favorite of his!

Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller | Non-religious thoughts on Christian spirituality.  YES.

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller | Very meta.  Thinking about how your life is a story and how to make it a great one.

judyTransformed into Fire by Judith Hougen | How to live life as your true self, how you are God’s beloved.  The book I desperately needed to read upon college graduation.
