The Best Non-Fiction eBooks

The best non-fiction eBooks represent some of the most popular books downloaded for eReaders, including the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble Nook and/or the Sony Reader (among others). Free eBooks are available (non-fiction and fiction), too, so you don't necessarily have to spend a mint to feed your non-fiction book habit! I've compiled some of the best non-fiction eBooks on this list, and I've tried to make it fairly comprehensive - but I'm sure I've missed several. If you don't see a favorite on the list, add it. And if you DO see your favorites, vote them up. See a non-fiction eBook on this list that didn't impress? Vote it down!

Most of the popular non-fiction eBooks out today are available in eBook form. If you're an avid reader, keep in mind that your local library might offer eBooks, allowing you to check them out for free for several weeks. For bookworms, this service is a great, inexpensive way to snag some of the best eBooks without spending a dime! Another suggestion: Check out some of the best eBooks sites to find bargains. Amazon's Kindle Store and others often include less pricey eBooks, many of them non-fiction. Audio eBooks may also be available!

Non-fiction eBooks may include everything from eBooks biographies, history books and eBooks about current events. With so many different choices, chances are you'll be able to find something you enjoy reading. It can be really tough to narrow one list down to the best of the best, but that's exactly what I hope to accomplish with this list. Hopefully everyone will be able to find a new favorite!
