  1. Evangeline

    Not necessarily a certain topic but there are authors, like Max Lucado, that I follow and look forward to new nonfiction books. I would love to win the gift card so I can buy new books. Thanks for the chance. ?

  2. Michelle Connell

    Blessed are the Misfits sounds right up my alley. I always seem to be the oddball no matter what crowd I’m with…

  3. Anne

    I enjoy history, health and inspiring stories about overcoming difficulties. Thanks for this lovely giveaway.

  4. Tracey Hagwood

    You’ve posted a lot of terrific books this week to look forward to. I had some on my list but found a good number to add. Thanks for doing all the legwork for readers 🙂

    btw: I’m enjoying my ringside seat to CFRR on Facebook. It’s exciting to see all your fasces!

  5. Debbie Clatterbuck

    I don’t really read non-fiction books very much, but I would read books about history and Bible Study. Thanks for the giveaway and good luck everyone.

  6. barbg

    I only read cookbooks of every kind myself. I would love to see a giveaway for some cookbooks on your blog.

  7. danielle hammelef

    Lately my nonfiction choices have been faith related, such as finding God in my daily life and devotionals.

  8. I’m reading an advance copy of Jon Acuff’s Finish, which comes out next month. Such great, practical insights into how perfectionism sets us up for failure. (And I’m not generally a perfectionist except for one specific area in my life, so, if, like me, you don’t think you have issues in their area, you may be surprised.) And it’s filled with humor too.

  9. Trixi

    I don’t tend to read non-fiction. The only two I do, is my Bible and my devotional every morning. I picked up one on a whim because I love the HGTV couple featured in it: it’s called the Magnolia Story about Chip and Joanna Gaines. Told from their point of view, a very good book if you ever wanted a recommendation!

    Thanks for the giveaway chance Carrie!

  10. Becky Smith

    I like books about history or biographies or just inspiring stories. I also like books like Joe Lieberman’s The Gift of Rest or other books that delve into aspects of the Christian faith and life, like apologetics.

  11. James Robert

    Any good Christian books I would pick up for my kids to read since that is what they look for.

  12. Marilyn

    I enjoy any history book. Thanks for this generous and fun giveaway. All of the books look so interesting and exciting. It is hard to choose just one.

  13. Pam K.

    I don’t read much non-fiction anymore, but when I do, it’s usually a book for Christian women or a cookbook.

  14. Paula

    I like nonfiction books about people who have been through tough times and came out stronger in their faith.

  15. Mallori

    I don’t read a lot of nonfiction, though occasionally I will pick up a biography. However, the first two books on your list–the ones by Erin Odom and Kim Anderson–look good.

  16. I don’t read a ton of nonfiction, but I am looking forward to a couple. One being Katie Davis Major’s new book!
    As for the question: if a book is missionary related I am apt to pick it up. 🙂

  17. Rachael

    I enjoy books about ethnobotany (plant lore), but otherwise most of the nonfiction I read is related to research. Though I did find Life Creative by Wendy Speake and Kelli Stuart particularly good (a recent read unrelated to plants or research).

  18. I will pick up non-fiction reads for writing craft and encouragement in parenting. If I read a review or blurb that the book has humor in it, I am more apt to look into it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Carrie

      i read mostly ‘Christian living’ etc if I’m going to read nonfiction. Occasionally a history/biography one


    While I read mostly fiction, I pick up non fiction mostly for bible studies and book club. I also love history! Thanks for the chance to win. I look forward to reading your blog more, it looks great! (I’m a new follower)

  20. Valerie S

    Books about the personal journeys to overcome life’s challenges are especially meaningful and inspiring to me.

  21. Suzie

    I tend to pick up devotionals or ones relating to my season of life (single adult) or anything unique that stands out to me. I don’t read a lot of nonfiction, though (maybe 4 or 5 a year)

  22. I like frugal books. I’ve read More than Just Making it and found it quite good. I also like Crystal of Money Saving Mom’s books. And also Christian living books from authors like Jennie Allen

  23. Nonfiction is one of the hardest things for me to read if it isn’t related to research for my books, but I have found three books so far that I have managed to devour that are non-fiction: A Confident Heart, Fervent, and The Story of With. I am really looking forward to a Bible study on verse mapping by Kristy Cambron in the spring.

  24. Winnie Thomas

    I don’t read much nonfiction, but I do enjoy biographies or memoirs, history, scriptures.

  25. Andrea

    I will read a nonfiction book if it is about something I am interested in, which is mostly biographies or world history events.

  26. Beth

    These all sound so good! I’m especially drawn to Sacred Rest because I struggle with that a lot!

    I do enjoy non-fiction. Usually I tend to read a lot of “women’s faith non-fiction” – obviously making that terminology up, but that’s what it seems like to me. I also like reading about history, about a variety of things.

    I’m looking forward to getting to some recent titles: A Fierce Love, Sacred Mundane, Unseen and She’s Still There.

    • Carrie

      ‘women’s faith non-fiction’ should totally be the name for that genre b/c I know exactly what you’re talking about!

  27. Donna Newman

    Usually I will pick up a nonfiction if it has to anything to do with History or maybe sometimes an intriguing biography .

  28. Gina M

    I like non-fiction books about gardening, homesteading, and re-purposing things.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    • Carrie

      if i thought a book on gardening would help my skills, i would totally check out a whole library’s worth. Sadly, I have yet to meet a plant I can’t kill LOL

  29. Arletta

    I prefer women’s non-fiction on topics such as decluttering, hospitality, friendships, creativity, serving in the church, etc.

  30. Kim v

    Some non-fiction book topics I love are writing, design, creativity, entrepreneurship. I could go on, but I’ll stop there. 😉

  31. Sonnetta

    I have been reading a lot of books on grieving and overcoming. It has been interesting for me to see how God was moving in the midst of grief. I am about to start Whispers by Mark Batterson tomorrow.

  32. Donna B

    I like to read biographies, historical books. I also like reading neat tips, handyman(woman) books.
