Musing Monday (April 27)

Musing Mondays (BIG) 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)

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.

 

 

I like the idea of reading non-fiction, there are many things I wish I knew more about, but I don’t really read as much non-fiction as I would like or even should (and yes, that includes the reading I should be doing for school).

When I do read non-fiction books, they’re usually ones I’ve picked up from the ‘new books’ shelf at the library, and yes, it’s usually the cover that draws me in.

I do find that I tend to read them differently. I usually sit up and read instead of sprawl on my bed or squish into the comfy lounge up the back. I also tend to take more notes - I’m a note taker anyway, but this is increased. Thinking about it now, it sounds a little strange, as if I’m sitting in a class or doing homework or something. I suppose it doesn’t come up enough for it to be too strange.

I rarely read non-fiction. If I do, it's related to literature.

My answer is up, combined with another fun reading meme.

I'm wondering if I am defining non-fiction differently from others!! I read it as religiously as fiction and don't treat it any different!

I try to take notes also when I read, regardless of whether it's fiction or not.
