I am a total fiction reader! I don’t read too many non-fiction books but when I do I try to keep it light. I am afraid too much heavy duty stuff may bog me down and I may end up not enjoying it at all. So, most of my non-fiction reads tend to be ‘Humorous’. For example, something like Lynne Truss’s Eats, Shoots & Leaves. I have also read one or two ‘Biographies’ and ‘Autobiographies’ but the ‘Biography’ or ‘Autobiography’ has to be of a person I already admire (i.e. Agatha Christie’s An Autobiography or Alfred Hitchcock’s biography It’s Only A Movie). Otherwise again I am afraid I’ll get bored.
