As avid readers, we know the books and authors we like, and we seek them out. But it can be a short step from reading what we like to finding ourselves in a bit of a reading rut - so why not try a reader’s “stretch?” This can be as simple as trying a fiction book if you’re a nonfiction fan and vice versa. Here are some great new fiction suggestions for nonfiction readers: Curious Minds, by Janet Evanovich (a crime novel); Family Tree, by Susan Wiggs (a romance); and Insidious, by Catherine Coulter (a thriller). And for fiction readers, these nonfiction selections are sure to please: The Gene: an Intimate History, by Siddhartha Mukherjee (a biography of the gene - a combination of science and social history); Hillbilly Elegy, by J.D. Vance (a look at the struggles of America’s white working class); and When Breath Becomes Air, by Paul Kalanithi (a physician’s moving account of how he dealt with his Stage IV cancer diagnosis at the age of 36).
