  1. You’ve read so much non-fiction! I admire that because non-fiction is really daunting for me. Have you always enjoyed it or do you have to push yourself to read it? Do you have any recommendations for non-fictions to start with? I’d love to know! 😊

    1. When I read non-fiction I always pick up something I want to learn more about or a person I am interested in learning about. Other wise I am totally uninterested and I put it down for good. This year for instance I wanted to know more about the War of 1812 because it was never really explained to me so I read about it. Non-fiction is really a personal preference. I would recommend doing two things. 1) Read reviews for the books you are thinking about reading. Some non-fiction can be written like a textbook (dry, boo!) others are more narrative based. Usually reviews will tell you. 2) Start off borrowing non-fiction until you get into a grove and find what type of non-fiction you like. This really helped me when I first got into it. Added bonus is no guilt for not enjoying or reading something you aren’t that into. Key to non-fiction is not to force it.

      I personally loved reading:

      Hope this helps!

      1. Thank you so much! How nice of you to take the time to write this reply. It does really help! Great tips and those two sound interesting, especially the first one! I’ll report back to you when I get around to trying some non-fiction. 😊
