#5OnMyTBR – Nonfiction

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!

Hello, reader!

I hope y’all are having a grand Monday! It’s time for another 5 On My TBR to kick off another week. This week I had plenty of books from which to choose since the theme this week is non-fiction books. I don’t pick up non-fiction nearly as much as I do fiction, so there are quite a few that are just languishing on my TBR.

I’ve picked five that I’d love to get to sooner rather than later, so let’s get to the list!

#1. The Lost Continent by Bill Bryson

Bill Bryson has to be one of my favorite non-fiction writers. His book about hiking the Appalachian Trail, A Walk in the Woods, was both informative and quite humorous. I had such a great time with that book, so I’ve been wanting to read another of his books. This one talks about Bill Bryson re-settling in the United States after spending years abroad. I’m sure it will be just as engaging!

#2. The Real James Herriot by Jim Wight

James Herriot was one of my favorite authors when I was a kid. I loved reading about his adventures as a Yorkshire veterinarian and tore through his collection of tales at rapid speed. So when I discovered that his son had written a biography on his dad, I knew I wanted to read it. It’s sat on my TBR for ages, now, but I would love to read it sooner rather than later.
