Saja's List of 100 Best Nonfiction (Modern Library) - Page 2

In 1999, Modern Library Publishing asked readers to vote for the best nonfiction books published in English in the 20th century. This is a list of the results, listed by popularity. Snooze. Read these when you have a lot of time on your hands...……..such as these days of sheltering in place.
