15 Nonfiction Books You Need To Read, According To People On Reddit

The next time you're looking for book recommendations, hop on Reddit. The "front page of the Internet" has some great communities where readers can share their favorite titles and request readalikes from other book nerds. To show you how the site can be a fantastic resource for bookaholics, I've got 15 nonfiction reading recommendations pulled from Reddit for you to scan through below.

I know that Reddit can be a threatening, soul-sucking place for people who aren't cishet white men, but the site's book nerd community has been more than welcoming, in my experience. There's the granddaddy subreddit, r/Books, but you can also check out r/SuggestMeABook, r/WhatsThatBook, r/Romance, or r/Literature. There are way too many book-related subreddits to list here, but if none of the above interests you, trust me, there are tons more to choose from.

For the list below, I've picked out 15 nonfiction titles from among hundreds of recommendations posted to Reddit over the last few years. If you're an avid reader of nonfiction, you may have already read most of the titles on this list, but no worries. Just click on the embedded Reddit comment and check out what nonfiction titles other Redditors recommended in the same thread.
