I can’t really pick a favorite non-fiction book for Back to School Book Week today. Last year I got hooked on the memoir thing that’s been going around – you know, the “my year of doing something really interesting/noble/crazy and then writing about it” genre? And, well, I’ve been plowing through those books so quickly that they are all blurring together in my mind.
My most recently-completed of these was Not Buying It: My Year Without Shopping by Judith Levine. And although I don’t think I will be swearing off all non-essential shopping any time soon, I did enjoy the book. The conclusions she drew by the last chapter were not exactly earth-shattering to me, but they might have been eye-opening to the less “mindful-shopper” me of 3 or 4 years ago. It was more of an encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing.
If you’d like to see some of my favorite reads in this genre, I’ve collected a list of them here.
How about you? Any favorite non-fiction reads?
