What Should I Read Next?

by Stacey

I love my Kindle for reading fiction but for some reason, I can’t seem to make the leap with nonfiction. I need to be able to look ahead and look back. I need to flip the pages and look at charts and graphs. I need to look and see the book lists that authors so often add at the end of the book to help my to be read pile to grow.

As a result of reading fiction on my Kindle, I don’t really have a physical fiction to be read list anymore. I keep track of these books by getting free samples on my Kindle or adding them to my Goodreads to be read shelf.

Non-fiction titles though are piling up around my house. I have a list of books that are all clamoring to the front of the line and I’m not sure where to start. I thought an informal poll might be helpful.

If you have read any of the books below, please let me know what you thought. On the flip side, if you haven’t read any of these titles, let me know which one you would like to know about and I will read and review the most requested title.

Here are my top three choices…

18342787It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens by Danah Boyd

17934399Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has The Time by Brigid Schulte

17383921All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood by Jennifer Senior

    I’ve heard good things about books 2 and 3, but the first one is new for me. They all sound good. Let us know what you choose and how it is.

    I liked All Joy and No Fun (particularly the last chapter) and haven’t read the other two, though they sound really interesting. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on whatever you read! xoxo

  3. They all sound interesting, but… kind of depressing, huh? It’s quite a strange world we live in these days.

    I prefer actual books for nonfiction too .  . . easier for going back to reference. . . and for skimming!
