Stream of Consciousness 2

Blog Social Media Photo 8Now, I don’t know how many of you are actually going to be interested in this topic but really these kinds of posts are more for my benefit. They allow me to word vomit all the thoughts I’m thinking onto the page. Or in this case, onto the screen.

This stream of conscious is all about my affinity for non-fiction books. When I mean non-fiction, I’m thinking of books like self-help, bios, autobiographies, etc. I mean look at my last book review!

I haven’t figured out why this is the case yet, but honestly does it really matter why? I don’t think so. I just really enjoy reading these kinds of books. I have a ton of them on my reading/wish list. I hope to get to read all of those some day.

I think one reason I like reading these non-fiction type books is because it breaks up the sometimes monotony of reading fiction all the time. Then again, reading a lot of non-fiction in a row can be monotonous too.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love my go to young adult fiction books and fantasy books. I like that these take me away to another world. But sometimes you just have to come back down to earth and learn something.

Now that I think about it, I really love reading the non-fiction books where I learn something. Well, you all know this. I did a book review on a book that did just that. I think of myself as a lifelong learner, we should all think of ourselves in this way by the way, so I lap up every book I can get my hands on that teaches me something. Are any of you like that? I hope so.

I think that is all I have to say about this topic. If I have more to say, you will most likely be seeing another one of these posts coming your way soon.

Are you like me and find yourself reading books like this? Do you have any suggestions for me? If so, let me know in the comments below. I love hearing from you guys and gals.

Thanks for reading!

    Now I can’t say that I’ve read any of these in full because I’m not really a reader. But these have sparked my interest and I am pretty sure they are worth the read.

      Hi Micki! Thanks for reading and commenting 🙂 Thanks for all the suggestions. I will go and check them out. It’s funny that you included Talking as Fast as I Can because I have actually read it, I’m a huge Gilmore Girls fan, and I did a review of it on the blog.
