When I was younger, I hated reading. While other kids devoured books as children, I fought tooth and nail. In fourth grade, I made up the ending to a book for a book report because I didn’t want to read the entire thing. Sad. Now that I’m older, I realize what the problem was all along: I just don’t like fiction. It doesn’t keep my attention like a good, thought-provoking nonfiction book does. I even enjoy reading textbooks if they’re interesting enough, but fiction just isn’t my cup of tea.
I went to a bookstore today and got some books for Spring Break beach reading. Airport kiosks are full of magazines, but nonfiction books? Not so much. Here’s what I found.
The cashier at the store definitely looked at me funny when I bought a book called A Map of the Child. Not exactly typical for a 19-year-old, especially one who looks like a 6th grader without makeup! I got all five books for around $17. Used bookstores are the best!
I’ll be sure to review these books after I read them, so check back in a few weeks for my thoughts.
Do you have any book recommendations for me? Have you read any of these books?
