My first nonfiction was Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northrup which is outstanding. His recall about his abduction and the years he spent as a slave is beyond belief. I recommend this one and will send my copy to anyone who is interested as it's unpostable - has stain in the upper righthand corner of the book.

I have Act One, the autobiography by Moss Hart for my real life bookclub and Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Also My Life on the Road - Gloria Steinem and I still need to finish Deep Down Dark by Hector Tobar, which was tabled over the holidays. Looks like biographies and current events
Yes, I will set one up! Just wanted to test the waters. Ask pbs friends who read nonfiction to participate. The more the merrier.

Since I find myself enjoying one area sometimes I think it's important to allow room for substitution. Simply use SUBSTITUTION in any spot you wish and list your book, rating and a bit about it, whether you liked it or not.
