A small joy of more time at home is more time to read. More time to read things you otherwise might not have, to plough through that 316 strong (in my case) ‘want to read’ list on Goodreads or perhaps to join a book club ( Romy Reads Book Club *small plug*).
I recently shared 15 Books to Take You Places and I thought that although I adore fiction, I also equally adore non-fiction and wanted to share some absolute gems with you. All pretty different, some obvious choices, some a bit more unusual… but all great. These non-fiction winners might also take you somewhere else, to explore another culture, religion or era, might expand your horizons or mind and also might give you a few different things to think about too. I tried to do a real mix of non-fiction that made me laugh, think, do and feel. I hope you find one for you amongst this bunch.
