Reading books can help widen vocabulary. I prefer novels but I also read non-fiction once in a while. In this post, I will list three non-fiction books, with summary taken from the internet, that I enjoyed and recommend to people who prefer to read books like these:
- Anne Frank The Diary Of A Young Girl
Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has since become a world classic. In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.
- My Family and Other Animals
My Family and Other Animals was intended to embrace the natural history of Corfu but ended up as a delightful account of Durrell’s family’s experiences, from the many eccentric hangers-on to the ceaseless procession of puppies, toads, scorpions, geckoes, ladybugs, glowworms, octopuses, bats, and butterflies into their home.
- Tuesdays with Morrie
A book about the time the author spent with his 78-year-old sociology professor, Morrie Schwartz, at Brandeis University, who was dying from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
