Non-fiction

Postby Cypress » Mon Aug 27, 2007 6:48 pm

Do you read non-fiction books? And if you do, what kind of non-fiction do you like to read? Which do you think is more useful reading fiction or reading non-fiction?

As for me, I prefer reading fiction books. To me, reading a novel to some extend is like watching a movie. But occasionally I read non-fiction too, not very often though. Out of every ten books I read, only one or two would be non-fictional.

To my shame I hardly know what non-fiction books mean :oops: If it is some fantasy where potatoes can talk and here and there are trying to conquer the free but undemocratised countries - I don't like it :(
if it... some hystorical books, boigraphical novels or some scientific articles - I like reading it, but not more than I like reading good classical novels! :lol:
