Musing Mondays (meme 1 of 4)



Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading

Today's Question:
How often do you actually put into practice what you learn from reading nonfiction books (if you read nonfiction, that is)?
My Answer:
Today's question is an easy one, yet a boring one when it comes to me.  The answer is No.  I don't read self-help books.  I did read one many years ago, can't even remember the title so I guess I didn't "put it into practice"  lol.

What about you.  If you want to join in the fun, link provided above.

I don't read self help..but I looked at this question as it refers to all non-fiction.
I don't think any of it need be 'useful'.

I do not read non-fiction at all. I like to read for enjoyment, not to learn anything! LOL

Probably the closest I have come to reading non-fiction is when I read memoirs. And oh yeah, I read some books that are part of the bible-study groups that I take part in....I guess those do count.

I love non-fiction. There are several books that have changed my way of thinking and my behavior: Michael Pollan's book on food, Garbage Land, Outliers, Silent Spring for a few.

I think that the question was referring to all nonfiction, not just self-help books, but I find it sad that so few have discovered the joy of reading for the pursuit of knowledge! It's really quite edifying.

I have read non fiction but like you I tend to steer clear of Self Help books. Oh well ... one day I'll open that Who Says Voices in the Head is Bad book ;)
