For day 5 of the Armchair BEA our discussion is about non fiction.
I do read a fair amount of non fiction. I especially like memoirs, biographies and autobiographies. I also like travel texts and historical books with a real emphasis on genealogical books or themes.
My current non fiction read is for my monthly book group.
My recent non fiction purchases are these two books
These were inspired purchases because I recently reviewed The One Penny Orange Mystery
by Morris Ackerman which I thoroughly enjoyed. I then heard a podcast
by Chris West about his book First Class. So having purchased the book I am looking forward to cracking on and reading it.
In terms of a memoir/travelogue I can thoroughly recommend Without Reservation by Alice Steinbach, which I also mentioned yesterday. Sorry about that, but it is a lovely book and I really enjoyed reading it. You can read my review HERE and you can see a further post that I wrote HERE
I also enjoy reading books that are a combination of travel & cooking. The next book that I shall read that fits that description is Beyond the Pasta by Mark Donovan.

Yes! I love books that are a mixture of travel and food as well. It's like a vacation for the senses!
I love nonfiction and you've listed a bunch of books that I haven't read! Woot! More books to check out 🙂
First Class sounds interesting. I love to read non-fiction but don't read many biographies/autobiographies or memoirs. Have seen such excellent recommendations today that I think I need to give them another try though.
thanks for the suggestions and for following my blog. I'm following you via GFC. I love non-fiction and to cook/travel so I appreciate the new recommendations.
