One thought on “Top 10 Fall Nonfiction Must-Reads (+ Giveaway!)

  1. I was thinking of picking up Looptail so you’ve confirmed it for me. I look forward to reading it. I read a lot of business related books when not reading fiction. My favorite this year has been What’s Next by Joy Chudacoff http://whatsnextthebook.com/.
    I’ve got a lot of respect for Joy Chudacoff and her advice in this book is excellent. Makes a great xmas gift for the women in the family this year.
