    A terrific post. I will click your links to support the cause as well…as for a non-fiction book that left an impression on me – the legendary Travel Writer Paul Theroux released a new book last fall called “Deep South” – he spent four seasons on the back roads of America’s south, and it is a fascinating and somewhat sobering look at a part of our country being left behind…here is a link to my post if you are interested:

  2. Thanks for this list! One book that has recently left me inspired is Jump by Steve Harvey. A lasting impression has to be The War of Art.

      I’ve seen War of Art but never read it. I haven’t actually read The Art of War either, come to think of it.

    I don;t read lotsa non-fiction [for that of escaping reality and so :)] BUT after the elections I just HAD to read Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis‎. Very eye opening. The Hate U Give felt SO non-fiction to me! There is no way that book can ever feel like fiction to me! it’s like the memoir of millions of people in the US and around the world!

      You’re so right about that. I haven’t read The Hate yet but I feel like I know the story really well from seeing it described on TV.
