I'd also love to see proposals that tackle the very real problems young people face today - like school debt, stresses of modern parenting, and challenges of finding meaningful relationships #MSWL #nonfiction #personalfinance #studentloans #relationship #parenting
Marie Lamba @marielambaI'd also love to see biographies featuring little known sides to well-known folk. Especially literary or art folk #MSWL #biography #nonfiction
Marie Lamba @marielamba#MSWL - now actively seeking #nonfiction that is hopeful and inspiring. Send me your social justice titles, books that elevate and celebrate women and diverse people, and books that aim to improve our society and help our #environment

#mswl - books that emphasize the bridge between science and the arts; I went through a phase years ago where I read a lot of books on the history of math; NF pbs that are written using a super engaging hook or concept
#mswl - amazing stories about what human, animal or plant bodies can do (e.g. more like on a cellular/biology level, not biographies); NF books about scientific discoveries made by LGBTQIA+, BIPOC or neurodiverse people; a how-to book for teens about divestment and eco-activism;
#mswl - I would love to see a trade NF book exploring antarctica and climate change. (This idea is not fully formed, so bear with me...) So like, why protecting antarctica is important, who "owns" antarctica, what is actually physically present (animals, research stations, etc)..

Christian Sahner @ccsahnerThanks to @AARWeb and @ReadingReligion for a great review of Christian Martyrs under Islam: “This is an excellent and balanced book that I highly recommend for scholars and advanced students in every field related to the Middle East.” @PrincetonUPress readingreligion.org/books/christia…
Had the luck of starting—+ well on track to finishing—this terrific account of martyrdom under Islam; another example of a #MSWL NF for this agent in love with research. Hagiographies are studies of exp.; v. interesting to see personal/communal exps. contextualized historically.
I'm intrigued by the e-sports world now that I have two close friends who work in it. I'd love to see any YA or kids books, fiction or nonfiction, related to e-sports in my query inbox. Deep knowledge of e-sports phenomenon required #mswl
A last thought for the eve, before W. descends into her multi-story-deep reading cavern. One #MSWL for NF: a recent acq. linked me to this 'practical philosophers' project' of @ReD_Associates, which aids biz theory: amzn.to/30EHuSu. Would love a project like this for me!
Anand Giridharadas @AnandWritesThe 30,000-foot book is a genre that tries to turn mansplaining into literature.
Should it exist?
This tweet and linked article—my nonfiction #MSWL is the OPPOSITE of these “30,000 foot books”
