Nonfiction 2019

I’ve become a bigger fan of nonfiction in the past few years after fighting the idea that nonfiction is only boring biographies. But honestly, there’s some good interesting stories out there. As a librarian I like to spread my wings and read a little differently and opening so I’m participating in a challenge on one of my personal social media apps. #Nonfiction2019 Bingo has been a fun way to keep track of some ideas in nonfiction that can be read.

So far I’ve read:

How to be a Good Creature by Sy Montgomery: a short book about a woman and how some major points in her life have been surrounded by what she loves most, animals! It’s a memoir but packs some good information about how the animals she discusses live and connect with others including humans.

Ten Days in a Madhouse by Nellie Bly: This is less than 100 pages and is available online for free. It took me a while to read because I couldn’t find it in any of the libraries I had a card at and I had no idea it could be found online. But this was worth the wait for me. Nellie’s experience in an 1887 New York asylum and how easily she was able to get into one has left a legacy and helped create improvements in how we regulate our asylums. This was toward the beginning of investigative journalism and she truly has made an impact.

The Rules do not Apply by Ariel Levy: A story marketed as grief as this journalist/writer’s family slowly comes unraveled. This has little pockets of feminism and how one woman advocated for her right to be independent, work hard, and wait to have her family in order to enjoy her career and personal life.
