Armchair BEA: So, You Want to Read Non-Fiction?

Arm Chair BEA

I did not always love non-fiction.  My relationship with non-fiction changed after reading two books:  Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt and The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson.  Simply said, I found these book to be written like fiction and loved them.  Once I realized that not all non-fiction is written in the voice of a  "Text Book" I found myself loving the right non-fiction selection.
Angela's Ashes: A Memoir 
The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America
Currently, I am reading:
The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity

Just finished:
Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted: And All the Brilliant Minds Who Made the Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic
