I do not often read non-fiction as I far prefer fiction as I find it more "involving" and therefore more interesting.

In particular I like crime books and James Patterson.

I occasionally read an auto biography however do not find these "exciting" and can put them down easily at any time whereas a novel, I tend to go on and on reading.

Finy, I also love reading James Patterson's books, although since I found AA, (online here, not the other AA,) I haven't read anymore, although I do still buy them from Op-shops!

I only like 'true' stories, not into fiction much.
Was in a Book Club up until this year, didn't often enjoy the books, occasionally we read a Biography or Auto and I love these especially. I now only go to the periodic get together dinners with the group...!

Yes I read a lot of non-fiction books
by AJ
I read mainly fiction, but I read a lot of books in total so that still means a fair few non-fiction.
Sadly I don't get to read much of anything at the moment :(
But back in the glory days when I read a lot, I liked a balance between fiction and non-fiction. I enjoy a well-written biography very much. The two worlds collide very interestingly in AS Byatt's "The Biographer's Tale". I recommend it heartily to lovers of both fiction and non-fiction!
No, I don't read non fiction at all.
I don't read fiction at all. Only true stories.

I'm getting ahead of myself here.

I go through phases. I will read several non-fiction books, then move over to reading several fiction books and find a few in a series to enjoy, then back to non-fiction, and so on. I am in a non-fiction phase at the moment.
I read mostly fiction but through writing groups on facebbok have recently read some non-fiction which I have found to be very enjoyable.

They were The Water Doctor's Daughters by Pauline Conolly, Guises of Desire by Hilda Reilly and Tales of the Thames by Pauline Conolly.

Mostly fiction. Only non - fiction when n it "jumps out" at me. Working in a library I'm spoilt for choice.
Like to read non-fiction mostly. Used to read much crime fiction, but gone off that a bit now.
Autobiographies: a few. I do like true crime.

Usually, as long as I've a book in my bag, I'm happy. But my ITablet now has a stronger pull on my time!
Never, ever go to a medical appointment without a book, & now, ITablet. Never get taken in on time.
I mostly read non fiction as I'm interested in different aspects of history.
In the last few years mainly history. I have gone through a phase of S.F. No crime novels and no bodice rippers.
I read both. The latest non fiction I read was
'Lady Almina and the real Downton Abbey' by the countess of Carnavon, more interesting than the tv. show.
I belong to a reading club, as opposed to a book club. I just cannot read anything that i feel as if its a school task. In the reading club, we read what we chose, and each of us has a short time to describe it, whether we liked it not,etc. I love that, as we all read completely different books, which meant we became interested in books we wouldnt have thought about reading before.
Yes mainly informative books or factual books, Dictionaries, Atlas, and other reference books.
Rarely a Biography.
1) No, never! 2) Yes!
by Miro
No, never, but my husbands reads biographies sometimes. He likes the war ones. I don't read books, as I'm to busy answering AA's.
