I love non-fiction!?
I read AND write non-fiction! 🙂
Don’t worry you’re not alone. I read it too. I consider myself a very eclectic reader. So share your choices with us all.
I read non-fic. Mostly native history and such, but sometimes biographies or true crime.
Always read non fiction
I try to read one non fiction for every two fiction
A lifelong love of biographies
I love biography and memoir.
Love books on the Revolution, American and English Civil Wars. Also books on WWI and WWII.
At least 1/3 of what I read is non-fiction. I recently read Devil in the White City and thought Sin in the Second City was a far more entertaining book.
Ive been reading The 6th Extinction.
@Saulo How mad would this make me? It sounds good but I also just finished Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and I don’t know how much more angry reading I can handle this year. ?
@Ashley if u care about biodiversity, really mad
@Saulo ? I’ll give it a few weeks.
My preference, been on a Bill Bryson kick lately…….
I like it sometimes.
Sometime fictions too
Aye! Thomas Paine, Frederick Bastiat, C. S. Lewis, some self-help books, history, Michael Heiser, Christian fringe books.
I like them sometimes too
Definitely. Probably 75 % or more.
I read a mix. Mostly fiction but I love non fiction. If you haven’t read Hillbilly Elegy, do. I’m halfway through it and loving it. Also, I loved I Am I Am I Am and You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me. I also read history, mental health/psychology and a mish mash of other topics. Whatever catches my interest.
I love biographies true crime … history … Bill Bryson travel books at the moment reading .. That Woman the life of Wallis Simpson The Duchess of Windsor by Anna Sebba
I particularly enjoy books on mountain climbing. Touching the Void is particularly good.
Yes, 99%. Some fiction is worth my limited concentration, but I can always find something interesting in non-fiction and I don’t have to read the whole thing. I have many interests, cooking, fitness, philosophy, spirituality, psychology, textile arts, meditation, etc.
I read everything.
I like biographies and histories
Memoirs are my favorite
Non fiction for me, although I have read a couple of novels over the years, but very few
True crime aficionado here!!!
Yes! I read both fiction and non-fiction!
Me! I love biographies!
I love non-fiction: Biographies are my jam
Love non-fiction. Matter of fact the reason I joined this page was to broaden my fiction horizons! It has helped!
I read mostly fiction. But, I read Devil in the White City and liked it so much that I bought all of Erik Larson’s books.
I Love non fiction books. I am currently reading In Strictest Confidence by Craig Revel Horwood and Twilight & History by Nancy R Reagin.
I love nonfiction. Recently finished reading Unthinkable by Helen Thomson 🙂
@Rachel what is it about?
It is a book that gives generalized accounts of people with unusual traits unique to their biological makeup. A man who can’t forget anything, a woman who gets lost everywhere including her own home, people with Cotards, etc. It’s more subjective than scientific, but is still an interesting book.
Any physics textbooks or Biochemistry. Also I still love solid state textbooks and any of the physics journals.
Oh Biophysics Grad/post-Grad.
I love both.
I read a lot of nonfiction to research information for stories I write.
I read more non-fiction than fiction; partly for work but mostly because there’s so much to learn.
@Susan me too.
Non-fiction is my go to, always. Fiction upsets me because inevitably at the end I’m sad it’s not real.
I usually read digital and with fiction, the end is at 100% or near it.
A good nonfiction usually ends like at 70%-80%, because of the notes, bibliography/references, etc ?
I do both
I read all sorts of books. I don’t have one genre
Yep, I read non-fiction too.
I read whatever catches my attention. My last non-fiction book was ‘The Gathering Storm’ by Winston Churchill. A powerful book!
I like it some… Only dabble here and there.
Here!!! Finally another one. 🙂
I’m reading “The Sociopath Next Door.” Good book and non-fiction.
I love non fiction
I like non fiction
Always reading multiple non-fiction as well as a fiction book.
It’s all I read
I read non fiction as well as fiction.
I read both
I’m reading 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson.
It’s pretty good, but he’s pretty much the smartest man alive…so yeah…
I read way more nonfiction than fiction.
I read only non fiction.
