Musing Mondays.


This is the discussion over on,Rebecca's blog,

Do you read non-fiction regularly? Do you read it in a different way or place than you read fiction? (question courtesy of Diane)

My answer is simply ,' no', I don't read non-fiction on a regular basis. I own quite a few cookery books and they get the most airing from the non-fiction shelf. There are a couple of gardening books in the house, but by looking at the garden you'll realise their pages are not turned on a regular basis.
Being employed as a nurse many years ago I've kept all my nursing/medical books and these prove tempting when an illness is discussed , too tempting at times , you know the old saying 'A little knowledge is a dangerous thing'!!!

Fiction is definitely my favourite.

Even though I enjoy non-fiction, I usually read more fiction. My favorite non-fiction reads like fiction...I don't like to feel like I'm reading a text book!
A good memoir, biography, or travel journal is likely to catch my eye, but I like reading about a variety of subjects.

I own quite a lot of cookery books too and I like to look at them more than actually use them - same goes for gardening books.

I try to steer clear of medical books as I start to think I've got something terrible! But I do have a few.

I like books on history and religion. Not religious texts!

Another Monday!

Ahh yes, A little knowledge is definitely dangerous. I'm not a clinician, but I play one at work. I have enough knowledge to carry an intelligent conversation.

I try non-fiction every once in a while, and I usually luck out.
