Honestly, I probably could have counted Catch and Kill for a few of these, but I went for the most obvious...something #AboutAScandalOrCoverup

Also my #Book2020 #SetInHollywood

Maya Angelou lived such a complicated and brave life, and this book outlines some amazing twists and turns throughout her life...all backed with her mother‘s guidance and support.

This was SO hard for me!! Only 10! But I did it, after some painful cuts, here are my top 10 Nonfiction books I read in this decade (and I think all but 1 was published in this decade too).

All of these were amazing reads, they taught me amazing things, and I recommend them all regularly. Thank you Litsy for leading me to all of them!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Cinfhen there are definitely some you could use there! 2mo

squirrelbrain Once again I haven‘t read any of these... 😳 2mo
Cinfhen I think 5 @MicheleinPhilly ....just more excuses to buy books 😉 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @squirrelbrain Well if you ever decide to pick one up, I hope you like it. 2mo
squirrelbrain Oh my TBR list is getting ever longer.... 😁 2mo
AnneCecilie I‘ve just screenshot your favorites, this is a future tbr. You read soo many great nonfiction books. 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @AnneCecilie I hope you enjoy and learn lots from whichever one(s) you decide to read! 2mo
AnneCecilie I‘ve already bought The Color of Law, so I‘ll start with that. 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Oh shoooot ... I should have put at least three of these on my list! No, four!!! Great picks, my friend! (edited) 2mo
Graywacke Great list. I‘ve listened to four of these and I constantly think about all of them. 2mo
Suet624 I listened to Lab Girl. Audiobooks aren‘t really my thing but I loved listening to this one. A great book. 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Suet624 I listened to it that way too, and I completely agree! 2mo
4thhouseontheleft I've read and loved half of these, and the other half are on my TBR! The Color of Law, Evicted, and 6th Extinction would definitely be on my regrets list. 2mo

This book is on sale on kindle in the US today. I originally listened to it on audiobook from the library, but picked up the ebook copy for myself anyway today....because I know I‘m going to want to revisit this one at a later date.

I‘ve read a bunch of “Celebrity” memoirs & this one was so deep and insightful on many topics from assault, to race, & gender, I‘m forever disappointed it didn‘t garner the accolades I think it rightfully deserved.

Howard_L Warren‘s book certainly offers the most in the way of plans and ideas. 3mo

I watched the Sunday shows again today (This Week & Meet the Press) and the cable networks after the debate and again I heard about how she‘s too liberal/left or else they talk about Biden, Bernie, and Buttigieg and don‘t even mention her name.... but for me, watching them all and reading a bunch of them this year with #ReadTheCandidates I think she has more widespread appeal than they are giving her credit for. Some Trump voters voted for ⤵️

Riveted_Reader_Melissa ...Change. More for systematic change than him personally, and I think bought in to all his promises. We‘ll see, eventually, but at this point I think the pundits aren‘t giving her enough credit. #NFNov #ReadtheCandidates #NonfictionMatters #Nonfiction2019 3mo

^This was written before the tax cut bill was passed, but I‘m guessing since they controlled all 3 branches of government at the time, that it‘s fairly close to what actually passed. Either way 🤦‍♀️

...”and destroying our environment, they would have lost by double digits. This is plain old bait-and-switch, now dressed up in its new gold-plated Trumpian version.”

This is part of the audible member sale, for those that are members. Definitely worth a listen.
