Since I read fiction, nonfiction, ya, and graphic novels, I cheated and picked 10 from each category so I didn't have to narrow down too much. Choosing these was like picking which pet or kid I love more...😂

Here's my #Top10oftheDecade #NonfictionEdition.

Any friends who have not already done this, I'd love to see your picks.

Scochrane26 I didn‘t put the Mister Rogers bio on my list, but I loved it. 1mo
Addison_Reads @Scochrane26 I still want to go watch the Tom Hanks movie too. Have you seen it? 1mo
Scochrane26 @Addison_Reads Yes, I saw it during thanksgiving. It‘s really good but not a bio exactly. The main focus is on a reporter who interviewed mister Rogers & developed a friendship. It had some powerful moments, & Tom Hanks is amazing. 1mo
Crazeedi @Addison_Reads just saw the movie with my girls, my youngest and I had a daily routine of Mr Rogers when she was little. We loved it, lots of good cry moments 1mo

Loved this book. A great companion piece for anyone who has read Moby Dick as well as a great meditation on whales and our history with them. A very moving and lovely book.

I didn‘t make it to 24 hours, but considering I had to work and couldn‘t listen or read for a good portion of my day, I‘m pretty happy with getting in what reading I did. Most of it was spent listening to Moby Dick. I‘m a little over halfway through the 24 hour audiobook. #TeamStoker #scarathlon #24B4Monday #readathon

I love pictorial works that detail someone‘s library. That should be no surprise, and I highly suspect I‘m not the only one in this group who feels the same way! This is a collection of American classic authors‘ homes, including library images. Perfect armchair travel, though the book is a bit oversized. #LibraryOfCongress #SoaringScores

LiteraryinLititz I love seeing people‘s home libraries too! 3mo

If you can get nothing better out of the world, get a good dinner out of it, at least. #happybirthday #hermanmelville

Happy 200th birthday #hermanmelville!🎂 Here‘s a #bookstack of the books I have either by or about him. I also have all his works on my Nook! #melvilleauthorproject

bromeliad You should totally add Figuring to your list! He's not the person it's ABOUT, per se, but he plays a very active role in one of the book's larger sections. Plus, it's an amazing book! 6mo
SharonGoforth @bromeliad Thanks for the recommendation! Who is the author? (Several different books popped up when I did a search.) 6mo
bromeliad Maria Popova :) 6mo

SharonGoforth @bromeliad Great, thanks! I have that book! 6mo
bromeliad Awesome! The prologue section is very...densely literary, but after that it becomes much more narrative and biographical, and is a surprisingly quick read for how many pages it has. 6mo
SharonGoforth @bromeliad Thank you! I look forward to reading it! 6mo
