I had this list saved up and forgot to post it earlier this year because all of my other lists were lists of twelve. II didn’t read enough nonfiction in 2010 to have twelve favorites, so the list is limited to eight. But they’re eight good ones.
River of Doubt: Theodore Rooseveltâ€™s Darkest Journey by Candice Millard. Semicolon review and thoughts about TR here.
Mornings on Horseback by David McCullough. The March Semicolon Book Club selection, and a lovely pick, if I do say so myself.
Scratch Beginnings: Me, $25, and the Search for the American Dream by Adam Shepard. Semicolon review here.
Apparent Danger: The Pastor of America’s First Megachurch and the Texas Murder Trial of the Decade in the 1920’s by David Stokes. Semicolon review here.
A Walk with Jane Austen by Lori Smith. Semicolon review here.
