Nonfiction / Fiction Book Pairing (Hosted by Sarah at Sarah’s Book Shelves) This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story. A Nonfiction / Fiction Book Pairing is exactly what I did last August when I took on Moby Dick.
I read a lot of books about Moby Dick in August. Kid books. Adult books. Nonfiction about whales. The true story of the whale that attacked a ship, upon which the story of Moby Dick was based. Fiction about a possible relationship between Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne. A nonfiction book telling us why we should read Moby Dick. As well as the fiction story of Moby Dick itself.
Here are reviews for ten Moby-Dick-related books plus the Moby Dick book, too:
