Table Talk: Non-Fiction Reads

Okay, who reads non-fiction? Raise your hand … *raises hand*.

Well, I’m sure I’m not the only one, but it’s not often I discuss non-fiction reads with other people. I mean, I know that non-fiction reads cover a vast variety of subjects. You have self-help, philosophy, cook books, medical books, books about writing, autobiographies, biographies … and the list goes on. So to find that one non-fiction book that you have in common with someone else is a rare find. It’s not like fiction reads where you share common authors or common genres. I’m not sure why that is … *thinks*.

I’m guessing it’s because really, there’s a lot of books out there on a lot of subjects. And I don’t know about you, but for me it takes me a long while to finish a non-fiction book. I’d like to say that I’ve been able to read a non-fiction book as quickly as I read fiction, but I’d be lying. I can’t think of a non-fiction read where I’ve finished it at 3 a.m. In fact, many of my non-fiction reads I’m still in the middle of and it’s been years since I’ve bought it! Some I haven’t even opened the covers. But it’s there. On my book shelf. And I’m not getting rid of it.

Amongst these reads are the following:

Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time
Lies My Teacher Told Me by James Loewen
Lies Across America by James Loewen
The Original Argument by Glenn Beck
Philosophy Now by Nigel Warburton

And a few more … (I just realized that my non-fiction TBR list is longer than I realized)

So, with that said, it is my goal to finish at least three on this list. That is one of my intensions, one of my wishes. Add to that three is my one book (which you can read about here).

Now, with my reading goal of 75 books, this should be to hard to accomplish. Right?
