I am an avid reader, but I enjoy reading fiction. I am not fond of non-fiction, but interestingly, I have read some non-fiction that really turned out to be interesting, insightful and helpful. Here, I am sharing four non-fiction books that I really liked. Moreover, you can re-read these books for motivation anytime, any chapter.
Kissing the Demon by Amrita Kumar (Harper Collins India)
I received this book from Writer's Melon for an honest review. As a writer, I find writing tips/quotes interesting. So, there was no reason to not get this book to read. And, I'm glad I read this book. You can read my detailed review, '6 Reasons Kissing the Demon is a Must Have For Writers' on Writer's Melon's website.
Don't Diet - 50 Habits of Thin People by Kavita Devgan (Jaico Books)
Kavita Devgan is one of the nicest person I have ever known (online - yes, I have never met her). When I got a chance to review this book, I grabbed it immediately as I find the theme of health and fitness interesting. However, there are chances that such books turn to be preachy, factual and boring, but here this books scores high. The author's friendly voice makes it interesting and motivating read. You can read my review (4 Reasons Don't Diet Will Keep You Motivated For Weight Loss) Here. Must have for those who are conscious about health and fitness.
Our Moon Has Blood Clots by Rahul Pandita (Penguin Random House)
This was the first non-fiction that I read. I found the title intriguing (and, for me, title matters). It's a memoir - deep and touching, enlightening and sometimes, shocking!
If you are interested in the history of Kashmir, you must read this. You can read my review Here
