non fiction recs?

Hello All!


  I'm an avid reader, but this is my first time posting here.  I usually go through two books a month, and I try to make one fiction (I love supernatural horror and medieval historical fiction!) and one non fiction.  I'm coming to the end of my James Herbert novel, so I need a good non fiction book next.  Any suggestions? I'm interested in history, psychology, physiology.. maybe even something baby related since H and I are planning on TTC in September?  I'm pretty open- thank you in advance!

  • I don't read a ton of non-fiction, but I know a lot of us on this board are fans of Jon Krakauer. Have you read any of his stuff?
