It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
This is Non-Fiction November and I plan to read more non-fiction books this month. Here are 5 NF books I am considering and hoping to read (summaries from Goodreads):
Changing my Mind by Margaret Trudeau. As Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s wife, the young Margaret had a difficult life. Here is her memoir of her time then as well as her struggle with mental illness. I greatly admire our Prime Minister’s mother.
The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell, Gladwell has written some fascinating books and this one promises to be as well. As Goodreads says:
“The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. “
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. This is a testament to an incredible journey, survival and the strength of Olympian Lt. Louis Zamperini., whose plane crashed in the Pacific in 1943.
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer. In April, 1992 Chris McCandless went to Alaska and within 4 months was dead. Krakauer investigated how he came to die in this unforgettable story.
The Age of Creativity by Emily Urquhart. A look at the creative genius of Urquhart’s own father and the impact of age on creativity.
“Emily Urquhart overturns long-held biases about aging, reveals how creative work, both amateur and professional, sustains people in their third act of their lives, and tells a new story about the possibilities of elder-hood.”
