I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award!
Since I am trying to do NanoWrimo this month, among other work obligations, I am going to do this a little differently than the actual rules. So instead of answering everything in a single post, I’m just going to answer one question a day and link a couple of bloggers at the end which I think are worth checking out.
Ok, first question–Jennifer asks:
What kind of non-fiction are you most likely to read?
This is a tough one. I actually only really got myself into reading more fiction this year (I had forgotten how much fun fiction is!) since I tend to read a lot of non-fiction. Last year I was tied up studying for my licensing exam, and even now the non-fiction I read at work is predominately the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (esp.Titles 19 & 21), and various case rulings.
This year I have been reading a lot more science fiction, so my non-fiction reading has been a lot of physics and biology. With fiction I tend to read only one book at a time, but with non-fiction (especially in science or math) I do sometimes read more than one at a time. I’m currently working on Other Worlds: Space, Superspace, and the Quantum Universe by Paul Davies and Eager: The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter by Ben Goldfarb.
Bloggers You Should Check Out Today:
Sean C. Wright is at it again over on Seanarchy with a Flash Fiction piece titled Vengeance Pasta, which is as good as it sounds.
N S Ford’s horrifying short Nightmare in Terrortubby Land was the inspiration behind today’s picture. (Thank you for reminding me about that scary sky-baby! I think…)
Current NaNo Word Count: Too Soon to Tell, Try Again Later
Ok, I’ve got to get back to NaNo, for the rest of you (or if you are looking for a break) feel free to answer the question in the comments. Do you read non-fiction for fun or just for business or education? What kinds of non-fiction do you read?
