(After doing this for nearly 2 weeks, you would think that forgetting to blog would be something that I wouldn't do. It's the 10th of April somewhere in the world still...)
Okay, so this isn't really a genre, but you have to make little adjustments in the A-Z challenge every now and again.
I'm talking about Information books, or non-fiction books. (I already had something else for N!)
My mum is addicted to Audible, and I enjoy listening to books before bed and I have recently acquired Bill Bryson's A Short History Of Nearly Everything. I'm quite looking forward to it as I haven't been reading a lot of non-fiction recently and my mum highly recommends it.
I used to read a lot of non-fiction as a child. I was obsessed with Animals, The Solar System and Ancient Egypt. Granted they were all pretty basic books but I devoured them none the less. I was never very popular child (I was a pretentious brat, even I wouldn't have been friends with me pre-age 11.) but if ever there was a general knowledge quiz for fun at anything I was a hot commodity knowing things like the Bat is the only flying mammal.
But as school became more intense at sort of High School level, I must have subconsciously thought that I didn't need any more factual information to cram into my head. But you can never have too much knowledge in your head, so perhaps it's time to make a change and make myself a promise to read a handful of non-fiction books every year!
What are your non-fiction reading habits like?
