Top 10 Best Non-Fiction Books Described in 10 Words

Top 10 Non-Fiction Books

 

 

Once upon a time I was an obsessed non-fiction self-help book junkie. Perhaps it was my background in psychology but I read everything I could get my hands onto. Back then, before the advent of the internet, this involved going me to the library every week and borrowing everything from the self-help section. Then when I became a life coach I started purchasing as many books as I could, on a variety of topics such as personal development, goal-setting, health, nutrition and finance, just so I could lend them out to clients who were working on that area of their life.

By the time I moved into my current home I had amassed a massive collection of books – I would estimate more than a thousand, enough to fill up a small library – but it was no longer practical to keep them all. I admit, it hurt quite a bit to carry out this much-needed cull, even though the books I bid farewell to were all donated to charity. But it was finally time to let some go and decide which ones still brought value to my life.

Nowadays I read mainly digital copies and if I love a book I will purchase a hard copy so that I have a constant reminder of its message sitting on my bookshelf. Only my all-time favorite books remain there now – some are old and some are new – but I love them enough to invite them into my home to stay.
