A Drinking Life by Pete Hamill is a great book. I enjoyed that one. There's also Oracle Bones by Peter Hessler. Great book about China if you're interested.

Some time back, I was subscibed to Chicken Soup for the Soul. They have real true stories which are motivating. You can buy the various books from them also. They are real good.

You might want to look at some historical novels. While they are fiction, they are based on history. It makes history more interesting, I think. Or go through the biography section to read about peoples histories. Most library systems these days are on-line and you can search their collections digitally. Once you have the title or author that interests you then you can acquire the book however you wish. I find the library directory very helpful. You can even access the directory of the Library of Congress on line! And, of course, there are the book sellers on line.
