Let me try again. I like reading Nonfiction, particularly the kind that is educational. Particularly the kind that educates and gives insight into people, society, geopolitics, etc.
Guns, Germs, and Steel
Redefining Reality (The Great Courses)
Prisoners of Geography
9 Presidents who Screwed up America (and 4 who tried to save her)
How We Got to Now: Six Inventions that made the modern world
to put it another way, the kind of nonfiction books that aren't "self-help" and aren't flat history. but are more like, commentaries.
I enjoy reading intelligent people's opinions on various subjects. especially complex ones and ones relevant to daily life. sometimes there are good choices on the NYT bestseller list. but i don't want to miss anything. :)
edit: alternative histories are fun too. they require deep thinking and analysis.
