I have always been a fiction reader.
As I spend more time with non-fiction texts, however, I am learning how they can serve the same purpose. They are telling a story; they are creating a world for me to enter into.
My reading goal for 2008 is to read 15 works of non-fiction.
- Pankaj Mishra's An End to Suffering: The Buddha in the World
- "I wholeheartedly recommend the two books by David Hilfiker that find reference in this program: Urban Injustice: How Ghettos Happen is an extended version of his early booklet that caught my imagination. It has a long and helpful bibliography in addition to all the information it contains. Not All of Us Are Saints: A Doctor's Journey with the Poor is an eloquent and moving account of his family's experiences. "

I learned of these from Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett, my favorite public radio show!
