My entire WL is nonfiction and it certainly is not moving much. I comb daily multiple WL offers, unpostable and damaged books and there is hardly anything.
Where are the nonfiction readers?
I think you have a great WL of non-fiction books!
I am a BIG non-fiction reader. Whenever I browse overstock book sales I always look for non-fiction titles to add to my bookshelf first.
There is also a Non-Fiction Book Swap in the Games forum that is ongoing. I've been participating for several months now and have found many interesting non-fiction books to add to my reading list. They are between games now so now would be a good time to join.
I do tend to hold on to my non-fiction history books and biographies. Especially for research when I'm writing different topics. My TBR (to be read pile) is mostly non-fiction books too.
I also have mold allergies posted in my RC (Reader's Conditions) which unfortunately means many cancelled book orders. Many of the older history books I'm interested in usually are usually stored in a musty environment so I often look for like new books at overstock sales or from personal collections where the original books are bought new and kept clean.
Honestly, if I ever found books on Dutch History pre-Golden Age (pre-1600's) or a biography of Renaissance Anglican Clergy like the Life of Archbishop Whitgift or Women in Early Film History I would be tap dancing with joy! Since these topics are such a specialty niche I know it would be a rare find on PBS. Books on specialized history and film history are often published by small presses and can be more expensive to buy than most books. I can find some of these topics as free E-reads online although I still love having the hard copy edition with all the photos.
Have a great day! Tara :)
Jiri-Here's the link to the Non-Fiction VB over on the games Forum:
I also belong to it along with Fara & have found tons of WL'd books I wanted there.
