Introducing Non-Fiction - Now in the Non-Fiction section.

What an idea! Putting the Non-Fiction over in the Non-Fiction section! Yes, folks, not only do we have a re-organized Non-Fiction section, we now have a re-organized Non-Fiction side of the ROOM! The "Biography" section is filled to bursting with exciting, tragic, romantic, astounding stories of real people's lives. I would also like to introduce a new category heading that should be exciting to many of you:

"Real Life Adventures, Especially With Ships."

Yes, I made that up all by myself. This section includes titles such as The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea by Sebastian Junger, A Half Acre of Hell: A Combat Nurse in WWII by Avis D. Schorer [technically a memoir, I suppose], 1776 by David McCullough, and Left for Dead: A Young Man's Search for Justice for the USS Indianapolis by Pete Nelson. See? Now with Extra ships.

I am also thinking of creating other sections such as Unclassifiable Lefty Intellectual Books About Really Interesting Stuff, containing such authors as Lynne Truss, Michael Pollan, Jared Diamond and Richard Dawkins. Probably Douglas Hofstadter, as well.

What do you think, People of Stoddard?
