Do you read non-fiction? Or do you tend to stay away? Recommend some reads to us.
I’m not really into non-fiction. I’ve read some memoirs that were good but those are typically not something I can relate to so I don’t really get sucked up into the story like I do with a work of fiction. I’ve read some “funny” memoirs, but they weren’t really all that entertaining to me. I’ve also read a true crime book recently that bored me almost to tears. I have read a few pregnancy and parenting books, so I guess that counts as non-fiction – but they weren’t exactly pleasure reading as they were “omg what do I do now” information books. So yea, I don’t choose non-fiction books for pleasure reading.
I honestly don’t read much non-fiction. I need some plot to drive the action forward. And as for biographies, I don’t really care to know about the personal or private lives of celebrities. I read one celebrity biography (which I won’t name) and now, no longer have any interest in anything this celebrity does. As for non-fiction that I can recommend, I’d say anything by Bill Bryson is worth picking up. His books are hilarious AND informative. And yes, I do read cookbooks. Especially older ones. Even if it’s a cookbook I’ll never actually make anything out of, I still want read it. American Pie is a great example of a cookbook I can just sit and read. Plus PIE! I’m up for trying other non-fiction. So long as it doesn’t read like a text book.
