2014 in Reading: By the numbers

New Nonfiction: 9 February 2015

So you want to try something new? Let's do this: each week on Monday I'll post a list of new nonfiction titles that will be published that week. It won't be a comprehensive list; it will in fact be quoted from the Reader's Advisor Online blog (for which, full disclosure, I also write). But: when the list is posted there, on Thursdays, what we highlight are big titles that will be of interest to the most readers. What I'll highlight here (perhaps with some explanatory notes) will be nonfiction titles I want to read. Very rarely will the highlightings overlap.

Ready? So here we go!

Axelrod, David - Believer
Bagans, Zak - I Am Haunted
Brooks, Michael - At The Edge Of Uncertainty

Greenfield, Susan - Mind Change: How Digital Technologies Are Leaving Their Mark on Our Brains (Note: For the most part I am annoyed by technology, although I do enjoy email. The very thought of taking a phone and the Internet everywhere with me in the form of a smartphone, however, gives me hives. So yeah, I'll be checking this one out.)

Harari, Yuval Noah - Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind
Hari, Vani - The Food Babe Way (The subtitle on this one is "Break Free from the Hidden Toxins in Your Food and Lose Weight, Look Years Younger, and Get Healthy in Just 21 Days." Sigh. That seems like a lot to do in three weeks, but I'll look at it anyway.)

Lightman, Alan - Screening Room: Family Pictures
Lovelock, James - Rough Ride To The Future
Loyd, Alexander - Beyond Willpower (Oh, Christ. Here's another one I don't really *want* to read but probably should. I've requested it from the library.)

McBride, Karyl - Will I Ever Be Free of You?: How to Navigate a High-Conflict Divorce from a Narcissist and Heal Your Family
Michaels, Shawn - Wrestling for My Life: The Legend, the Reality, and the Faith of a WWE Superstar
Moustaki, Nikki  - Bird Market of Paris
Rae, Issa - The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl
Santorum, Rick & Karen - Bella's Gift: How One Little Girl Transformed Our Family and Inspired a Nation
Seitz, Matt Zoller - The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel
Thomas, Dana - Gods And Kings
Wimbush-Bourque, Aimée - Brown Eggs And Jam Jars

So. What do you think. Anything look good there?
