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.
