About the Book

Trust a librarian to help you find books you’ll want to read

Library Lin’s Curated Collection of Superlative Nonfiction is a librarian’s A-list of nonfiction books organized by subject area—just like a library. Linda Maxie (Library Lin) combed through 65 best books lists going back a century. She reviewed tens of thousands of books, sorted them according to the Dewey Decimal Classification system, and selected an entire library’s worth for you to browse without leaving home.

Here you’ll find:

  • Summaries of outstanding titles in every subject
  • Suggestions for locating reading material specific to your needs and interests

In this broad survey of all the nonfiction categories, you will find titles on everything from the A-bomb to Zen Buddhism. You might find yourself immersed in whole subject areas that you never thought you’d be interested in.

About the Author

Linda Maxie is a retired librarian from Virginia’s southern Piedmont region who is writing Library Lin’s Curated Collection of Superlative Nonfiction Books series. During her decades of library work, Linda got a lot of experience playing matchmaker for readers and books. Her obsession with quality led her to refine a method for choosing top books on any topic. When she’s not researching, she’s out roaming with her husband, Roger and their rescued cur dog, Dusty Kardashian.
