Musing Mondays - Non-Fiction

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading non-fiction…

Do you read non-fiction regularly? Do you read it in a different way or place than you read fiction? (question courtesy of Diane)

My answer...No, I don't really read much non-fiction. I read some, but it's usually celebrity autobiographies or biographies. Sometimes I'll come across a topic that will interest me and I'll read them. I'm not against them, it's just that my interest lies more in the escapism of fiction.

  1. I am trying to be good this year and read more non fiction - do I get a brownie point for trying!

  2. I enjoy reading memoirs and sometimes books with political or social topics, but fiction is my escape and my favorite.

  3. I agree -- nothing beats fiction if your goal is to escape! And I love your Monday cat -- captures too often how I feel on Monday mornings!

  4. honestly, to a degree, most non-fiction seems like work to me, rather than pure pleasure.

  5. LOL, love the grumpy kitten!

    Yes, I love to read non-fiction, but that's because I write romantic fiction...
    I read New Age, herbal manuals and Science books as well as Historical facts...I research religions and craft books on writing...I like everything!
    I think it's important for a writer to know as much as possible to bring a realness to her books.


  6. I'm feeling like the kitten this evening after a long day! Don't read much NF either.

  7. I know what you mean! I have to be really, really interested in the topic or it will bore me to tears. Cute kitty pic!
