Non-fiction 5 Challenge Final Selection

I have changed around a few of my picks for the Non-fiction Five. I realized that I did not have any pregnancy books on my list. I know that I will be reading some anyway, so I might as well have them count for the challenge!

So, here is my final list:

1. Nickel and Dimed - Barbara Ehrenreich
2. Survival in Auschwitz - Primo Levi
3. Birthing From Within - Pam England
4. Ina May's Guide to Childbirth - Ina May Gaskin
5. Human Cargo - Caroline Moorehead

I'll keep the two books that got booted off the list, The Great Influenza and Jihad vs McWorld, as alternates.

And a third alternate for the pregnancy books is The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin.

Primo Levi's writing on his time in Auschwitz is incredible. His lack of resentment really struck me.
