A shot of a beautiful monastary library in Prague. The ceilings have ornate paintings on them and the walls are lined with ornate wooden bookshelves filled with books.

  1. Great list Lydia. As I was searching my lists, I noticed that my longest titles were Non-Fiction, so I made two lists. I see yours look non-fiction. I like the sound of a couple of these so am checking out The Band That Played On and The Heart Knows Something Different.

  2. Wow, now those are some really long titles! I never even thought about non-fiction. Duh, how out of it am I? Ha! Ha! I think you get today’s prize. 😉

    My TTT

  3. I saw some of these in my hunt to compile a list. Among the Missing and The Complete Manual of Things That Might Kill you sound interesting. The Heart Knows Something Different must be so touching.

    Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog.

  4. Oh wow. So many fascinating topics I would never have thought to look for! The brownie book and the mindfulness book might be going to war in my heart… I like what the latter is saying, but brownies are my favorite dessert EVER and this book seems like a dream come true. And hand-lettering?? Also my weakness. It kind of reminds me of Susan Branch’s books.

  5. These are so long that I had a hard time reading many of them on the first try, haha. I’m not really a non fiction reader, but some of these my be interesting to look into. I’m also intrigued by The Brownie Experience having recipes and calligraphy… a strange mix, but one I would might be interested in.

  6. Love your list Lydia! I have not read any of these and will check out The Band that Played on first.
    Non-fiction titles are certainly longer (even excluding any subtitles)…
