Do you read non-fiction regularly? Do you read it in a different way or place than you read fiction? (question courtesy of Diane).
I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but I do read it regularly. I like to have at least one that I’m reading in between reading fiction. I read mainly biographies, books on history, religion, art, travel and cookery.
I don’t read them differently from fiction, apart from the travel and cookery books, which I use as reference books – dipping into sections rather than reading them straight through. I do like looking at cookery books for inspiration and at travel books to get an idea of what places look like. I suppose I read cookery books mainly in the kitchen, but really I read books wherever I am (including cookery books).
I think the one main difference when I’m reading non-fiction is that it’s usually for information and I don’t often make notes of what I’m reading as I do with fiction. The indexes help and sometimes I wish fiction had indexes too.
