I wish there was a "highest pick" rating to give. I love this book by Susan David: it's been my most frequently recommended book lately. If you're human, you probably have felt an emotion or two in your life. What you do with your thoughts and feelings matter: not only to you personally but also those around you. This book is like the owner's manual for how to live the life you want to live . High praise!.

Librarianaut In the same milieux- I recommend MINDSET by Carol Dweck, PhD. 3y
CatchMyBookBreath @Librarianaut Yes, that one is a classic, isn't it? A good balance to that one is The Upside of Your Darkside by Todd Kashdan. 3y

Helter Skelter was the first non-fiction book that I thoroughly enjoyed, and kick-started my love of true crime (the books, not the action). I also just really love Mr. Bugliosi and have a lot of respect for him as a person. #5555Giveaway

Megabooks I'm trying to decide whether to get this at the audible sale! 3y
kylienoele @Booksandcooks Do it!!! I know it's long but it's so worth it!! 3y

#nonfiction books for the #5555giveaway
You are amazing! @Booksandcooks

I love reading nonfiction from time to time, especially when I'm on a train - it just makes me look so nerdy.

Sorry for the blurry picture.

The Middle Ages | Morris Bishop

#5555giveaway My favorite nonfiction has to be historical. I studied music history, and most of the music history faculty at Ohio State were medievalists. I knew a lot about the music of the Middle Ages, but not enough general history. I decided to correct that after I retired. Susan Wise Bauer was great for the timeline and political history, but this was the best for cultural history and readability.

Megabooks I do not know much about that at all. You've really made me think about something different. That's a really interesting thing to study! 3y

@Booksandcooks thank you for doing the #5555giveaway! Since I read a lot of non-fiction, I have so many I like. Because today is Mother's Day, Founding Mothers, about the women who supported and advised their men as America worked for independence, came to mind. I still have yet to read Ladies of Liberty by the same author, about women (some are in both books) who helped early America become what it was.

Reviewsbylola I always have had a fascination with the First Ladies. I have seen these around but wondered if they might be too dry. I don't typically like rigid biographies, but books that read more like memoirs are great. The book I'm reading now doesn't intend to focus mostly on the First Ladies but it definitely does imo! 3y
Megabooks I've considered reading those! Definitely adding to my TBR! 3y
ValerieAndBooks @Reviewsbylola your book seems interesting, I look forward to to seeing what you think of it! Founding Mothers doesn't focus on just future First Ladies such as Abigail Adams and Martha Washington but also other women such as Elizabeth Hamilton and Deborah Franklin. The author quotes often from letters and papers, which you may or may not like, but gives the reader their authentic voices. (edited) 3y
ValerieAndBooks @Booksandcooks thanks for doing this, it sure added to my TBR 😉 3y

The Edge of the Sea | Rachel Carson, Sue Hubbell
post image

Rachel Carson is an incredible writer. This is a natural history of the sea shore, but it reads like poetry - she really loved exploring the world around her. And it's packed full of line drawings of creatures and sea shells and seaweed. Bizarrely, it makes for wonderful bedtime reading. (And yes, I will read Silent Spring - one day!)

Megabooks My grandmother bought my father Silent Spring in the 70s to explain to him why she had been a science teacher. ❤️❤️ 3y
RachelO @Booksandcooks That's brilliant! 💚I hope we get to hear your fave nf tomorrow- it was so hard to choose just one. 3y
SusanInTiburon Yes, that looks like excellent bedtime reading. I find reality so reassuring these days. 3y

So I just posted a review about this yesterday, but because it's my new favorite nonfiction book, here I am with it again. It's the contemplative and meaningful sketchbook-like memoir about bird watching and all the little things that make life worth living that I didn't know I needed. I recommend it to anyone, especially if you're facing loss. #5555giveaway

Megabooks 😊😊 3y
RachelO This sounds lovely! 3y
Hobbinol Oh I just have to get this... now. Coincidentally The composer John Luther Adams just created a piece: Ten Thousand Birds. It was just in the NYT a day or so ago... 3y
Bianca @Hobbinol Maclear frequently mentions music and composers in this. (Her husband is a composer and her birding guide is a musician.) 3y
