Non Fiction

Buy Non Fiction books from Kingdom Books, there is a huge selection of old and new titles.


When one thinks of literature, the joys of fiction are one of the first things that comes to mind. Or the unique pleasures of poetry. But of course there’s a wide demographic of readers that feel deeply that reality can indeed be stranger than fiction. That with the bizarre and quirky happenings that go on in real life, there is more than enough material for great literature. And so there has risen a large cry for nonfiction, for texts that engage with the world as it is as compared to how we can imagine it to be. Of course, they’re right!

 

One of the largest sub-sections of our whole online store, nonfiction can truly be said to have something for everyone. It includes the joys of comedy and the deep dives into the past provided by historical texts. Whether you’re looking for the best collection of show dogs or an in-depth engagement with just how important the Battle of Bannockburn truly was, looking through our nonfiction section will prove to be a real treat.

 

One of the great pleasures of meandering through such a broad section is that you may find titles that you didn’t even know you were looking for. Someone looking for a volume of military history might come out with a biography of Scottish childhood, or a Medievalist may find a book on the diaspora completely engrossing. This is the power of Scottish nonfiction books, and here at Kingdom Books you’ll find the best place to buy nonfiction books online!

 

No matter what your tastes are, you can rest assured that you’ll always find something you’ll like!
