A really good non-fiction book I am reading right now is Six months in Sudan/James Maskalyk. It's the story of a Medecins sans Frontiers doctor and the months he spends in Abyei. It is facinating, sad, personal, insightful and a little gritty so if you don't want to be moved, don't read it :-)
If anyone is looking for a good read, try The magicians by Lev Grossman. The reviews were all mentioning it to be like Harry Potter, but it is more like the Narnia books. Very good read, read it it 2 days.
Anyway: the paradoxical commandments: finding personal meaning in a crazy world by Kent Keith. It gives you some perspective on daily life and a direction to go when you aren’t sure where to go.
