50 Short Nonfiction Books You Can Read in a Day (Or Two)
Luckily, writers know that some people will just never read The Wheel of Time. So they gave us these books. The Great Gatsby , by F. Scott Fitzgerald. What more can we say about the Great American Novel? Just that it, like Americans, is a quick read.
The books on this list will appeal to readers young and old looking for a great weekend read. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden? Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates's attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. Coates shares with his son--and readers--the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children's lives were taken as American plunder. Beautifully woven from personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage, Between the World and Me clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward.
I have no doubt. Big books are heavy! Nonfiction is intimidating enough without the extra worry of physical pain that might be associated with reading it. Books that are easy on the wrists. Books that can be read in a day or two.
The Summer Book by Tove Jansson The quintessential celebration of summer in Scandinavia — 22 vignettes of a girl and a grandmother on an island. Jansson is best known as the creator of Moomin , and this book is my quiet, curious and simple favorite. It tells the story of a woman who suddenly stops eating meat, a shock decision that fractures her family relationships, allowing glimpses of the traumas, assumptions and impossible dreams that lie beneath.
