A Selection of Non-Fiction Top-Selling Bargain Books

Top-Selling Bargain Books for Gifts

If you search Amazon for “non-fiction” you will turn up 3,429,300 results. How do you choose which ones to read? Which ones are top-selling bargain books? This week features guest blogger, Yvette Prior’s review of three of her non-fiction favorites.

I just met Yvette recently, and love her style of writing and photography at the Priorhouse Blog. Like me, she is an educator, so she was hard to resist. She also loves top selling bargain books and sharing books with friends. I hope as an author you do not care if you get paid for each time your book is read. Sometimes my friends and I pass around our favorites. Read on to find out what Yvette likes.

Three Books from September

Someone recently asked me about my favorite book genre and I answered, “I prefer Delancey Place genre.” (a review of When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi Amazon ranked #21 in all books and #27 in Kindle books. MI)

Well, that means I mostly prefer non-fiction….

Anyhow, while on my trip to South Carolina in September – I stumbled upon brand new “dollar” books (and you know how it is – can’t pass that up – I mean, I need to help move along the close-outs….as a courtesy). Anyhow, I narrowed my selection down to six books and then after a realistic shake of the head, I picked only three.

I was with my sweet momma and so Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou (2013) was an instant first choice.  This book felt like you were reading someone’s personal notes – with light thoughts, black and white photos, and short chapters – I found I knew a whole lot more about the late great Maya.

Then, because I was staying in the Paris Room at our friend’s southern home, The Road to Burgundy by Ray Walker (2013) was tightly in my grasp.  This super easy read was all about Walker’s personal adventure of leaving his job and going to France to make high-quality wine in Burgundy. I enjoyed this book, which informed as much as it entertained, and now it is in the giveaway bin for someone else to maybe enjoy.

My last selection was Everyone Loves You when You’re Dead by Neil Strauss (2011).  I have yet to read it, but it looked interesting when I was skimming it. The copyright page says “No names or identifying details have been changed to protect anybody.” In this book, Strauss gives us 228 stories from more than 3,000 articles he had written after interviewing musicians, actors, and artists.  Keep you posted on this one.

Ok, in closing, I need to tell you that today’s post was inspired a blog post I read earlier at O at the Edges (the full post is Here). The O at the Edges post reminded me that there are many of us who have to balance our book collections. This post also really helped me to feel better about the large batch of books I just gathered up to give away (along with saying goodbye to our Keurig – we are done with it. My, my, my – trends come and go – and after loving the Keurig we see that it has sat unused for most of this year – I guess we all prefer our grind-n-brew and the Italian espresso maker).

Anyhow, as I part ways with dozens of books (most were cheap or free) it helps me to think that my donating them might lead to someone else appreciating them right now.  I have some books I will never part ways with, but some of these sweet reads just need to go….

  1. Great book review, love Yvette’s style, thanks so much for sending me the link Marsha (I missed a lot of Yvette’s (and everyone’s) post last summer/autumn after I lost my dad).

    • That is so hard. And your family comes first. You shouldn’t even give it a second thought. It’s fairly easy to catch back up with blogging friends if you have to go away for a while. The hardest thing for me when I stepped away from blogging because of working was having the time to make new friends and blog and catch up with old ones. Making friends anywhere takes the investment of time and interactions. Thanks for taking so much time with me! I’m honored! 🙂

  2. I don’t read much non-fiction but this post makes me think I should seek out some. I find it impossible to part with books and my Kindle has solved that problem. I can keep them forever and they take up no space. Perfect!
