{Bloggers Recommend} Non Fiction Books That Fiction Only Readers WIll Enjoy

From Nicole @ Linus's Blanket
Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President by Candice Millard is an account of the brief presidency and death of James Garfield. This is one of the best examples of narrative non-fiction that I have read and I was deeply engrossed in this story {Goodreads reviews}.

Destiny of the RepublicLove is a Mixtape

Jamie @ The Broke and The Bookish
Love is A Mix Tape by Rob Sheffield. Ahhh ... Love, love, love this book. That is all ... except - LOVE IT!
Shannon @ Reading Has Purpose
Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and It's All Small Stuff by Richard Carlson. This is my all time favorite book and I recommend it to everyone. It completely changed the way I look at life. It helped me through a tough time because it allowed me to realize that my perspective was off. After reading this book, my disposition changed. Life seemed better all of a sudden even though everything was exactly the same.

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and It's All Small StuffMiracle in the Andes

From Alyce @ At Home With Books
Miracle in the Andes by Nando Parrado is the first-hand account of one of the survivors of a plane crash in the Andes (upon which the movie Alive! was based). It is more than a riveting tale of true-life adventure: it is a revealing look at life at the edge of death and a meditation on the limitless redemptive power of love {review}.
Natalie @ Coffee and a Book Chick

Good recommends, I have Destiny of the Republic and Devil in the White City and will have to get to them sooner rather than later. I think the others will have to go on my list too.

I've been wanting to read Love Is A Mix Tape forever!

Most of the nonfiction I read are memoirs...and I LOVE memoirs! But I did read The Devil in the White City and loved it, and so did my husband. My book group read River of Doubt by Candice Millard, an excellent NF book about Teddy Roosevelt's exploration of the Amazon.
