New Non-Fiction

Here's a selection of new non-fiction titles that recently hit our shelves:

A Bone to Pick: The Good and Bad News About Food, With Wisdom and Advice on Diets, Food Safety, GMOs, Farming, and More by Mark Bittman. This is a compilation of Bittman's columns for the New York Times. A bit of everything on the topic of food and how we get it.

I Regret Nothing, A Memoir by Jen Lancaster. Another humorous read from Lancaster, who reflects on middle age and her bucket list.

Goebbels: A Biography by Peter Longerich. For the history buffs (especially WWII), you can delve into this over 900-page book on Hitler's henchman Joseph Goebbels.

John Hughes: A Life in Film by Kirk Honeycutt. The size and shape of the book reminds me of a yearbook, which is fitting for this photo-packed reflection on John Hughes' life and films (Ferris Bueller, The Breakfast Club, and more).

What Katie Ate On the Weekend... by Katie Quinn Davies. Gorgeously photographed cookbook, with an international bent.

When To Rob a Bank... And 131 More Warped Suggestions and Well-Intended Rants by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner. From the authors of Freakonomics, comes this new book of the best posts from their years of blogging on their website.

The Wright Brothers by David McCullough. As the title simply states, Pultizer-prize winning author McCullough focuses on the first brothers of flight.
